On the 31st of may we media mentors went to the Hay Festival to volunteer as stewards.
We were all nervous and shy on the way there but as the days progressed we got into our roles and really enjoyed it.
During our 3 days we had various tasks to do including queue management, taking tickets, micing (taking the microphone to the audience at the end to ask questions), helping at the cooking sessions with kids and just enjoy the amazing atmosphere of the festival and read some books.
We also saw people such as Jo Brand, Tony Ross (illustrator, Horrid Henry or the Little Princess) and Alan Davies.
We enjoyed the experience so much that we are very exited to be involved in the Hay Festival next year too!
