Who better to open the 2022 Festival than poet, journalist, playwright and shining jewel of Yorkshire, Ian McMillan? The Bard of Barnsley will be sharing stories about one of his great loves – the sea – and the places and memories that have shaped the grand old dad he is today. Join McMillan as he discusses My Sand Life, My Pebble Life; a series of evocative, funny and nostalgic essays revisiting the coastal places which stamped themselves on his childhood, through memories of seagulls and sunrises, fish & chips and frisbees, miniature railways and midges, all peppered with poetry.
