Happy Birthday Michael Rosen

The author and poet celebrates with Brighton Festival 

Today was another fun filled morning at Brighton Festival full of a great range of events across our sun filled city but there was one very special occasion to celebrate in the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange– that was the 67th birthday of our Guest Director Michael Rosen which takes place on Tuesday.

After a sold out performance of ‘Bear Hunt and Chocolate Cake’ and another ever popular performance of ‘Big Book of Bad Things’ some of the best cake bakers in Brighton – Jan Hansen and Martha Sheppard of Catwalk Cakes, Bond Street– presented a Michael with a ‘bear hunt’ cake complete with chocolate teddy bears, sugar figures and lashings of chocolate icing.

The audience of children and mums and dads then sang a loud and cheerful round of ‘Happy Birthday’ to the birthday guest as the bakers took to the stage to surprise Michael with the delicious treat.

Michael joked, “Thank you! Twenty eight again?!”

Michael’s actual birthday is on Tuesday. Why don’t you send him a birthday tweet on his special day @michaelroseyes
