Warwick Words for what turned out to be a lovely event yesterday.
It was the first time I've ever visited the Lord Leycester Hospital in Warwick - about as Shakespearean a building as you could hope to find.
Kim and I gave ourselves plenty of time to mooch around Warwick town centre (which is well worth a visit), to pop into Warwick Books (closely involved with the Warwick Words festival) and grab an excellent bite of lunch at Wylies Tea Room. Then back to the Lord Leycester to prepare for my hour-long talk and book signing.
An excellent turnout, with tea and cake to follow, and I met some wonderful people. Signed a few books, too. All in all, a great day out.
So - in the past two months, I have given hour-long talks about "Arthur and the Grail" at Pagan Pride and "Who Killed William Shakespeare?" at the Warwick Words festival. And I'm really getting to enjoy doing this. Mind you, it helps when the organisers are so friendly and amenable.
Once again, thanks to all those who attended, and special thanks to Keith and Helen at the festival. May it grow and prosper!
