Claire Rowley is compering our Literary and Acoustic tent on Saturday. She’s a broadcaster, comedian and writer who’s quirky take on being a woman of a certain age, parenthood, teaching and doing anything to avoid a routine existence, makes her an instant hit.

She was short-listed South Coast Comedian of the Year 2017. We caught up with her to find out what she’s been up to since…

How’s your 2018 been so far?

It’s been a very busy one. New training at BBC Radio Cornwall has kept me busy, along with a production of the Next Step for the Feelgood Theatre Company, which I am patron of and which I run in Cornwall for children aged from 5-13. Also I’ve been busy running Public Speaking workshops and booking acts and MCing comedy gigs in the South West.

And what are you up to right now?

I’m in the middle of planning my next Feelgood theatre workshop, an adaptation of Mamma Mia at Easter and I’m also In the middle of writing a TV drama, which I’m really excited about.

What are you looking forward to about the Food Festival?

I’m really looking forward to it again this year, it’s always so much fun. This year there are lots of interesting acts in the Literary Tent and I cant wait to meet and enjoy a bit of banter with them and the audience.
