Festival Forums description

One of the absolute places to be throughout the Festival is on The Palais at lunchtime as David Marr interviews one fabulous Festival artist each day. With characteristic wit, perspicacity, and all the strengths of a good listener, David will each day open up the Festival experience through the eyes of its artists, in a free conversation open to public.
