This year's Guest Director will be poet, writer, broadcaster and former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen. He said of his role:

"Festivals are great informal colleges of the arts for anyone. Contributing to what the festival will offer has drawn together many of my passions, interests and daily concerns."
