Brighton Festival has announced that the Guest Director for Brighton Festival 2017 is the acclaimed recording artist, poet, playwright and novelist, Kate Tempest..
Described by the Guardian as ‘one of the brightest British talents around', her prolific output across multiple disciplines has attracted considerable acclaim and a unique range of audiences.
Having made her live debut as a spoken-word artist at just 16, Tempest initially described herself as a rapper. However she is now equally at home as a poet, novelist, musician and playwright - garnering extraordinary success in each field.
Fans now have the chance of owning what is arguably the ultimate Harry Potter collectible and one of the most famous houses in the world, the home of Harry Potter and his cupboard under the stairs.
The property in Picket Post Close in Bracknell, known as 4 Privet Drive in the film, was selected out of hundreds of houses around the UK to become the home of Harry's Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley Dursley.
Although the house itself only features in the first film, it was recreated along with the entire street in a studio for the remaining phenomenally successful series.
Enquiries about the house, which is on the market for £475,000, have been coming in from around the world.

TV stars Ant and Dec and Holly Willoughby have joined Phillip Schofield for a charity event in Berkshire.
They were the hot shots of the day at Phillip and Stephanie Schofield’s Clay Pigeon Shoot, held at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School on Friday. In aid of Shooting Star Chase.
The event was in aid of Shooting Star Chase.
Phillip Schofield, who's been a Patron of the children’s hospice charity for over 15 years, hosted the event with his wife, Stephanie. They welcomed a total of 25 teams to one of the UK’s premiere shooting schools, raising over £40,000.
Declan Donnelly, who accidentally broke a gun during the shoot, said: “I don't know how it happened - maybe I'm too strong! But the most important thing is I beat Ant. We were neck and neck until the last stand but I won in the end. Ant isn't very happy about it but I'm over the moon!
"It's been a brilliant day and everyone's had a laugh, and to be able to raise a few quid for a very worthy cause at the same time is great. The charity is amazing - any parent wouldn't want to use a hospice but the fact that Shooting Star Chase is there if the worst happens is really reassuring."
Phillip Schofield said about Shooting Star Chase: “I've known the charity for so long I remember having the plans for one of the hospices on my kitchen table. And if you visit, you realise it's not a place of sadness - it's a place of joy and celebration, and a place of happiness for families in those final hours, days or months.
"It's awful to think anyone has to step through those doors but I'm so grateful the angels that work at Shooting Star Chase are on the other side. The charity do an utterly incredible job and that's why I'm proud to be involved.”
The actress and former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has opened proceedings at this year's Southampton Boat Show in Hampshire.
“I am thrilled to be opening the Southampton Boat Show this year. As an avid fan of all types of activity on the water, I’m really excited to spend some time at the Show, soaking up the atmosphere and experiencing some of the brilliant attractions on offer.”
"We’re delighted to welcome Michelle to the Show this year. As Britain’s biggest boating festival, the Southampton Boat Show is a much-loved event and one of the leaders in the global boating calendar.
"The Show attracts visitors from those new to boating to avid sailors as well as a host of famous names, and we’re thrilled that Michelle will be joining us to help open the Show.”
The designer of the south coast's newest and tallest visitor attraction said the i360 was back in business today - and promised no repetition of what he called 'the teething troubles' of the past week.
David Marks admitted the problems, which saw hundreds of people trapped in the observation tower, were unfortunate and apologised to customers whose trips had to be cancelled. Andy Dickenson reports.
A 'virtual reality lab' has been set up as part of Brighton's Digital Festival.
From Friday visitors to the city's Old Market venue will be able to experience more than 15 different immersive worlds, including one that lets users view 'through the eyes of animals' - as Robin McNicholas explains.
The largest of its kind in the country, the Digital Festival runs until the end of the month.
