Ben Haggarty returns for Manx Litfest 2013!

As we've mentioned before, this year's line-up of visiting authors and poets will see different faces from last year... with one or two exceptions.

One of those exceptions is the obscenely talented performance storyteller Ben Haggarty, founder and artistic director of the Crick Crack Club, who has confirmed he will be back again to entertain spellbound audiences this September.

Last year Ben performed Fairytales for Grown-ups on the Saturday night and a family show on the Sunday - The Devil, The Tsar and the Three Dry Biscuits - and the feedback we received from punters for both performances was incredible. This year he'll be dazzling us with different shows, and we'll have full details very soon.

Ben will be based at The Studio Theatre at Ballakermeen High School, again with a show aimed at older children and adults on the Saturday night, and one for the family on Sunday afternoon. What's more, he'll be staging workshops over the weekend for anyone (young and old) interested in studying the craft of performance storytelling.

Make sure you book early - Ben really is one name who is not to be missed.
