AF Harold
‘A.F. Harrold is a poet who writes for both children and adults. It’s not necessarily normal or fun, but it’s usually over quite quickly. www.afharrold.com.’
Amy Hoggart as the brilliant Pattie Brewster
Pattie Brewster is just another normal, non-creepy and ok little person. A YouTube film sensation and author of several self-help books (not for publication, just for her), she covers all the hot topics of the day, like environmental, political and cats. Catch her showcasing her investigation into human friendship, its mystical and friendly secrets, plus how to make it (safely). Expect nice times, other things and possibly friendship.
