Dive-In Saturd-Hay

Hamilton High stays at home to watch they Hay Festival, as we all can

by Hamilton High,
first published: June, 2021
Isabella Tree, Gaia Vince, Garth Nix, even Floella Benjamin, all worth watching just to hear them introduce themselves

Saturday at the Hay Festival

The semi-final day at the Hay Festival and it's been a great one so far. Saturday… Begins with a flurry of marvellous names: Isabella Tree, Gaia Vince, Garth Nix, even Floella Benjamin, all worth watching just to hear them introduce themselves.

Floella

The Floella

Gillian Clarke, the National Poet of Wales (my pun-self can’t help wondering if there’s a Bard of Sharks) will probably be bringing a curse upon her and her family’s heads by ‘animating’ an ‘epic poem’ originally only ever sung (probably only by men) with ‘modern musicality’ which we can only hope doesn’t involve beat boxing.

The brilliantly unlikely literary names continue with Pandora Sykes and Hollie McNish (the latter always worth watching) having a gas, and Megan McCubbin discussing horse shoe bats with neatly dressed nature man Chris Packham.

Hamilton High

Hamilton High was born on Doheny Ave in the gutter, is a poet, writer and observer of popular culture. Likes fashion and cares less for style. He's on the move, he's an alter ego and we hardly ever hear from him.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
