MESSAGES FROM THE STARS OF THE 2007 FESTIVAL


ANITA GANERI

“What a brilliant place for a festival. Horrible Geographers love nothing better than being beside the sea. Congratulations to Nick and all the Festival organisers, and good luck for this year.”


CHILDREN’S LAUREATE JACQUELINE WILSON

“I think the Appledore Book Festival sounds a wonderful idea – and it’s for such a worthwhile cause too. I’m sure it will be a big success. I hope to take part next year!”


JEREMY STRONG

“The Appledore Book Festival is a brilliant idea, run by brilliant people and featuring brilliant writers and illustrators. All it needs now is a brilliant audience, and that’s YOU! Come and join the fun! With best wishes to Appledore Festival.”


STEVE BARLOW AND STEVE SKIDMORE

“Help! We are being held captive in Nick Arnold’s cellar until we say how brilliant the Appledore Book Festival is. Well, it is! Great place, Great people, Great idea. You’d be mad to miss it! Can we come out now – please, Nick?!”


MARTIN BROWN

“Of the Festivals I’m doing this year, Appledore is the one I’m looking forward to the most – and being there for the first one is the icing on the cake!”


TONY DE SAULLES

“It’s so nice to visit somewhere like Appledore, it’s a village which has just saved its library and a place where people obviously have a love and need for books.”
