The Campfire event, which takes place at Ditto’s studios in Islington, north London, on 20 June, will give attendees an insight into Larkin’s career.

This will include how she has helped to grow the UK boutique festival, in partnership with Pete Lawrence, since its launch in 1994 into a five-day event attended by more than 40,000 festival goers.

To complement Larkin's talk, the evening will also showcase an exhibition of Big Chill posters, which have been created by a number of UK and international artists.

Ditto will also be launching the fifth Sunrise Online Film Festival - an event which puts a spotlight on young film making talent.

Last year's Big Chill Festival, which was set to take place at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire between 2-5 August, was cancelled by its organisers Festival Republic.

Melvin Benn, the company's managing director, said the event clashed with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
