Ailsa Oliver

Author Book Cover
Ailsa is an actor and performer with strong family connections to this area. Her maternal grandfather was a Hull trawlerman, as indeed were several of her uncles. Although both her parents were born in Hull, her father was in the army so she spent a large proportion of her childhood away from Yorkshire.

She gravitated back as soon as she was able, and now lives just to the east of Hull. She reads voraciously and currently enjoys volunteering for Absolutely Cultured at the museums, galleries and events in Hull. She is particularly fond of the Ferens Art Gallery and its wonderful permanent and temporary exhibitions. Ailsa is a freelance actor, working for two professional companies, and is a member of the Chameleon Players amateur dramatic group.

Ailsa will be facilitator for the events with authors Jessica Fellowes and Erica James on the Sunday of the festival.
