imagine festival on the southbank

What a day! Philip Reeve and I did two Imagine Festival joint events in the big ballroom in the middle of the Royal Festival Hall, in front of over a thousand people! Thank you, Philip, for this oh-so-lovely picture you drew of me during my introduction:

We were introduced by the incredibly striking Madame Lark, who was rather disturbingly carrying a large saw and violin bow.

No one was injured during the course of our event, although some musical notes got some seriously abusive-but-impressive treatment. She's a hard woman with a voice box and she knows how to use it.

Can you believe I used to be shy... For our afternoon Monsters vs Goblins show, the ballroom was packed, with people standing at the back.
