On Wednesday we brought you an interview with one of our established Kids Show presenters and today it’s the turn of Worthy FM’s latest Kids Show recruit to get a grilling. Courtney is the niece of our Licensee Joanne Schofield and will be taking to the airwaves this festival alongside our presenters Phil, Hayleigh and Jack.
Hi Courtney! You’re new to the WorthyFM team for 2013, so tell us a bit about yourself!
Well, I’m 16 which means I’m in my last year of secondary school and just about to finish my GCSEs. I enjoy things like reading and drawing because I’m quite a quiet person, but on the other hand I also love performing in front of audiences and acting.
What are your Glastonbury experiences to date?
A few years ago now, when I was younger, my aunt Joanne took me to the site before the weekend when everything was being built and set up. I remember thinking how massive the site was and how diverse and different it was to what I was expecting. I used to think it was just music but now I know that it’s much more than that.
How are you feeling so far about coming to Glastonbury 2013?
I’m so excited but I’m also nervous because I’m not going to know many people. I think the experience is going to be incredible, as well as the atmosphere, and I literally cannot wait!
Since the line-up has been announced which band or artist are you most looking forward to at the festival this year?
The line-up this year is amazing! There are so many acts there that I love, I’m excited because Example is going to be there because I’m a huge fan of his, but I also love Mumford & Sons and I think they are so unique and talented.
What would be a Courtney ‘Top Tip’ for people coming to Glastonbury for the first time?
Definitely to bring wellies and a raincoat because the weather is so unpredictable.
Tell us what your dream festival line-up would be…
If Taylor Swift performed at Glastonbury, that would be it for me, I think she’s incredible! I think it would also be amazing to see Michael Bublé and Florence + The Machine because they both have powerful voices.
What do you think of the 2013 line up so far?
I’m so excited, it’s one of the best line ups for Glastonbury I’ve seen, there are so many diverse acts and something there that everyone will love.
What are you most looking forward to on the Kids Show this year?
I love working with children so the Kids Show is going to be so fun, I’m just looking forward to meeting new people and having the opportunity to work with a younger audience.
