Michael Rosen is Guest Director at Brighton Festival
Date Posted: 09/05/13
The city of Brighton has long been a popular destination for those on weekend breaks in the UK, and never is this more true than during the month of May, which sees the annual Brighton Festival take place.
Featuring an extensive programme of artistic displays and performances, the event is one of the highlights of the British summer, and this year's edition is being overseen by guest director Michael Rosen.
One of the country's most famous children's writers and broadcaster, Rosen was once the Children's Laureate and is also well known for his poetry. Perhaps the most cherished of his works is We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
The festival, which runs until May 26th, will explore many of Rosen's interests and passions through mediums such as theatre, literature, film, music and dance, while a number of talks will also be taking place.
Anyone wishing to attend the festival may want to act sooner rather than later as Brighton hotels tend to fill up fast at this time of year.
