ACTRESS and comedian Isy Suttie has joined the line-up for this year’s Gap Festival in Goring.

She is among dozens of acts who will perform between June 15 and 19.

She will be discussing her debut book The Actual One, which is about her struggles with the pressure of adult life.

Tickets for the biennial festival, which was held for the first time in 2014, will be on sale from April 5.

The event will showcase a wide range of arts including pop, folk, jazz and classical music, drama, dance, literature, poetry, art and sculpture.



It takes place across venues in Goring and Streatley with performers ranging from household names to individuals and groups from the villages.

This year’s theme of “flying high” will be celebrated with a giant swan sculpture in the grounds of the Swan Hotel in Streatley.

Artist Michelle Griffin will create the metal frame and villagers will add various white materials to create the illusion of feathers.

Dance group Green Room Collective will be organising a flash mob performance featuring schoolchildren from in and around Goring.

The line-up also includes historian Lucy Worsley, poet Luke Wright, former Times editor Sir Peter Stothard and rock band The Lightyears, who grew up in Goring.

Villagers are being encouraged to become a “friend” of the festival for a £100 donation. For more information, visit www.thegapfestival.org
