Book Festival

Been meaning to post this for days. The Edinburgh Book Festival programme is available (pdf link) and it looks fabulous. Here's what I'm thinking of going to, depending on work shifts and availability of leave:

(August)

sunday 10th Richard Holloway 8pm

monday 11th Richard Dawkins 11.30am

wed 13th iain banks 8pm

thurs 14th tony benn 1.30pm; alan johnston 6.30pm; ian rankin 8pm;

saturday 16th christopher brookmyre 11.30am; terry pratchett 1.30pm; ac grayling 3pm; chuck palahniuk 8pm

tuesday 19th dave mckean 8pm

wed 20th susie dent 2pm; jasper fforde 8.30pm

fri 22nd mark thomas 8pm

I won't get to all of these, I'm sure, but is anyone interested in going with me to/ meeting up with me at any of them? Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning, and I'm going to buy tickets for at least Holloway, Dawkins, Benn and Pratchett, because they'll sell out fast.

That's it, rub it in. I'm horribly jealous now.

Would love to go to Holloway with you if there are still tix left. Will I get my own or do pairs have to be bought in order to sit with people?

They're usually not specific seated tickets, but I'll pick some up anyway :)

Right, I have two tickets for us for Holloway :) Dawkins was sold out, annoyingly. I'm a twat. I also have two tickets for Mark Thomas, one of which is yours if you want it :)

Fab, Holloway sounds good, and am quite happy to go to Mark T as well. Is there a site so I can get times/dates/venues noted down?
