Site build well underway

It's so nearly festival time - not long to go now for the Book Festival starts on the 15th. The city is gearing up too, just holding its breath for the first of the many festival shows to start - any minute now for the Fringe. Our site build in Charlotte Square Gardens is already well underway and the sun is still shining on us. The crew are very happy about that as you can imagine! And here they are laying out the floor of the RBS Main Theatre.

Not wanting to be sitting in the office in such good weather and rather jealous of those on site (although not so envious of all that heavy lifting), we at Book Festival HQ dropped in to take a few pics.

Trucks, poles, panels, rope, fenceposts, grass and even some tents. It's amazing to think that in just a week or so there will be 8 fully equipped venues up and running, a press pod, an authors' yurt, 2 bookshops, a signing tent, cafes, bars, a Spiegeltent, walkways and awnings.
