Vale MP meets The Gruffalo!
Alun Cairns MP and his son Henri were among the first to meet The Gruffalo on his recent visit to Cowbridge as part of the successful and now annual, Cowbridge Book Festival.
Henri and his father, the Vale MP, attended the annual book festival suited to all ages that is proving to be a huge success.
In its second year, the Cowbridge Book Festival has more than forty established writers participating in many talks and presentations over the course of the Festival week.
The book presentations will cover every genre from historical to autobiographical, crime, poetry, romance, travel, gardening and sport. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and chat with the authors and purchase signed copies of their books.
Mr Cairns said:
“I’m a huge fan of the Festival, having attended the popular event last year and enjoyed meeting the many writers and visitors alike. This year is no exception – Tony and Stella Cheeseman and the team have worked really hard to organize and stage a magnificent line-up of literary talent for the 2012 Festival.
“This year, the Festival has become a become a registered charity with the specific aims of promoting an interest in literacy, book reading and creative writing and also to raise much needed funds for worthy causes which is fantastic.
“It was great to see so many locals and visitors attending the Festival in Cowbridge over the weekend, and of course Henri was delighted to meet The Gruffalo!”
