Walking the boards

David was surprised to be called up onstage this evening to be presented with his Scrabble book. (We were as well!) I mucked up the camera, so have it on extended video instead of a flash photo.

He also got to draw the raffle! No mention of the lack of junior competition in the competition.

On the left, Festival Director, Paula Truman. On the right, Cllr Judith Elliott, Festival Chairman. In the centre, David holding an improvised raffle drum: a Cadbury's Roses tin with some tinsel wrapped round that they rustled up during the interval.

We were delighted that David had the courage to go up, as he gets stage fright. Perhaps if he had been given time to think about it he might have done a Gordon Brown and Bottled it.

Sometimes stage shy boys can go on to become great thespians or hellfire bloggers.
