|Grayson Perry poses with fans at Chelmsford'University on Monday evening|
We all enjoyed meeting Grayson Perry at the official launch of the Essex Book Festival on 29 February. Met so many familiar folk who certainly wouldn't have missed the chance of having their books signed by this well-known Turner Prize-winning artist. Grayson is a local lad, born just up the road at St John's Hospital in Chelmsford. Through March, we will be meeting many other famous writers, artists, poets, journalists - even a couple of politicians - well, the Book Festival is always packed with interesting names.

There might be some tickets left!
