Things were all go this morning as we welcomed a host of guests into the Cathedral for our media launch.  Opening the Festival, the Very Revd DR. William Morton was joined by Cllr. Paddy McCartan representing the Lord Mayor’s office. Offering a taste of what’s to come a group of school children from St Brigid’s Primary School were treated to an animated rendition of Gulliver’s Travels told by local story teller Karl O’Neil. Jessica Traynor, festival participant and curator for The Martyn Turner Exhibition was also on hand to treat audiences to an extract from her latest publication. Topping of the day’s festivities Gulliver himself made a rare appearance in the Cathedral to the delight of all the gathered Lilliputians in attendance!
