It has been great to be gifted tickets to Henley Literary Festival again this year. The first event I went to was on the evening of the opening Saturday where I watched authors Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum and Matt Coney, Dad vs Baby being interviewed by Steph Douglas, mother of three and founder of Don’t Buy Her Flowers.
The evenings interview discussed the authors experiences of parenthood and was full of honesty and laughter. I have followed The Unmumsy Mum for a long time on Instagram and it was great to see her talk in person. The session concluded with a Q&A and after the event finished I bought myself Sarah Turner’s new book ‘The Unmumsy Mum A-Z – An Inexpert Guide to Parenting’ in the Festival Hub.
Then in the morning we headed back to Henley-on-Thames to take my eldest child to the Elmer the Elephant event which took place in the Town Hall. The session was filled with storytelling, songs and audience participation and celebrated the 30th years of Elmer the Elephant.
It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning before heading for a walk along the river and a play in the park.
Thank you Henley Literary Festival for inviting us along again this year.
