Rebecca Truman launched the Circus strand of the festival on Saturday 6 October with her fascinating illustrated in conversation event on about her book called Aerialist.
Professor Vanessa Toulmin interviewed Rebecca in front of an enthralled crowd, causing gasps amongst the audience when she regaled tales of her performances and intense training schedules. Rebecca enjoyment the event, saying: “I’ve been so well looked after and absolutely loved meeting everyone.”
Vanessa commented that: “Rebecca’s book reveals the pain and suffering one has to go through to be a world class performer. Very few books actually tell you the way it is but this one does.”
