Hay when the sun shines

Had the pleasure of spending a few days down at the Hay Festival last month, where I caught Neil Gaiman talking about the late Sir Terry Pratchett (who he describes as ‘gloriously grumpy’), and Peter and Dan Snow, who reflected on the The Battle of Waterloo.

Hay was, as always, a delight. The setting is glorious, the weather was benign, the festival was expertly staged, and best of all it’s less than an hour’s drive away from me.

Oh, and the fish and chip shop in Broad Street just  by the river bridge serves the best chips in the country!
