    Good morning Mr Morgan,
    It was a nice video. Thank you posting.

    • Mr Morgan says:

      Now you can watch the interview! Ask Evie, Jasmin and Hariot another question if you’d like!

      • Vihansa says:

        Hi Evie, Jasmin and Hariot, Thank you very much for all the information.
        1. Have one of you ever been to the art festival held in Edinburgh every year?
        2. what does it look like?
        3. Do people from different parts of the world participate the festival?
        4. Can you participate at the festival?

        • Evie says:

          Hi there!
          1. Yes we have all been several times, Evie (me) has worked there for the past two years handing out flyers for certain shows!
          2. It is very big spread across the city, there’s lots and lots of people, people dressed in costume, with many street acts promoting their show or busking, doing crazy tricks and stunts.
          3. Yes, all over! many people work towards it all year, and go to similar festivals held in Australia and other parts of the world.
          4. Anyone can participate! It requires some hard work to get a venue, sell tickets and find a place to stay. But with fund-raising and organisation, many people do it and come back year after year.
          Hope this helps!

      I loved it as a child. Can you answer Ms Essorโ€™s question about the Irn Bru by replying above? I want to know as well!

  • Melina Ada says:

    Hi Mr Morgan,
    I have one of Robert Burn’s poem called ”O, My luve is like a red, red rose”๐ŸŒน

    O, my luve is like a red, red rose,
    That’s newly sprung in June:
    O, my luve is like the melodie
    That’s sweetly played in tune.

    • Mr Morgan says:

      That’s a gorgeous poem! I’m giving extra merits to you for sharing this poem, and to Aaron for replying to Ms Essor’s question.

      They will be added to next week’s total!
