I've been to the Terry Gilliam's talk, and it was amazing. The whole program of the festival seems amazing and the Royal Festival Hall seems to be the perfect place for this kind of talk: it is big enough – as of course there is a lot of people interested – but still feels intimate. It was also really nice that they were welcoming to hearing impaired people, as there was a sign language interpreter and closed captioning (also helpful for foreign people like me that eventually miss an information or a joke – specially upsetting when the speaker is such a funny person!)
