Tiny Owl had three events at the world-renowned celebration of literature, the Hay International Festival. In this sleepy Welsh village, the fun doesn’t stop just because the sun has gone in!

Pippa Goodhart read A Bottle of Happiness, and afterwards children (and grown-ups!) were able to write down what made them happy and create their own bottles to take home.

And later in the day, Alia Alzougbi gave a pardekhani performance of Rumi’s fable The Parrot and the Merchant, complete with a beautiful canvas of Marjan Vafaian’s illustrations. After that she helped the children to make their very own parrot puppets to set free!

Below you can find a video montage of our photos from these lovely events.
