Here is my introduction to the Home Festival (before bringing Moishe’s Bagel onto stage). You’ll notice the endless repetition of the words extraordinary, fantastic and exciting. Not (I’m afraid) in a poetic manner – just sheer over enthusiasm.
Notice how I fail to mention the dates (24&25 June) or indeed the web site (www.dartington.org/home). Did mention the twitter hash tag though #homefest11
EARLY BIRD TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE – up until mid day tomorrow – and you can read more about the initial line up here

Then heres a longer clip – filmed from the balcony – of the Bagel’s final piece:-
