On a book related note, I am volunteering at the Henley Literary Festival this week. I have been involved with the festival in some capacity over the past few years, I worked as an administrator over a couple of months part time initially and I have tried to volunteer some time at as many of the festivals as I can. I only missed one due to starting a new position – can’t really ask for time off on third week in!
Part of working at the festival really made me want to pursue a career in events, marketing etc. and I really want to still get into these areas in the art & culture world. I am currently working in events and I really enjoy it and the marketing and social media aspects I do, so I know it is definitely the right area for me.
If you are ever able I would definitely recommend coming along to the festival, it is quite often a fantastic line up and a great atmosphere.
