The Palais

  • About

    One of the absolute places to be throughout our 2017 Festival was on The Palais at lunchtime as David Marr interviewed one fabulous Festival artist each day. (People are still talking in shocked tones about that interview with Lars Eidinger, star of Richard III!) With characteristic wit, perspicacity, and all the strengths of a good listener, David will each day open up the Festival experience through the eyes of its artists.
