So we played LFest in Uttoxeter and we stormed it as usual.
De Castro world-renown clown and founderof CPP joined the ranks.
She arrived on Sunday and texted me:

"When I get to the festival where do I go?"
"Drive to the artists' enclosure."
"Will I find you there?" 
"Will it be easy? I'm used to Glastonbury, you know."

De Castro A - this is LFest Breau.

Review for The Butch Monologues

                Still feeling elated from an amazing Premiere at WOW festival on the Southbank!

                              Queues were round the block and we couldn't fit everyone in.
                                      A brilliant start for The Drakes and The Butch Monologues.

                 There is an amazing review by Lois Weaver released today on Diva Magazine's website.
