Winter Words

From the comfort of Pitlochry Festival Theatre I'm looking out over a fast-flowing river Tummel to Ben Vrackie's sunlit snow fields.

While Lynne reads her 'Tale o Peter Kinnen' and signs books, I have had an interesting conversation with author and battle re-enactor Rob Low who is here to talk about 'Bannockburn, Bruce and the Kingdom Series'.

Some BP friends are up from Hertfordshire for Lynne's 'Literary Lunch' and other Winter Words offerings and while they enjoy that, I'll be listening to a free event - 'War Poets' readings (Sassoon, Kipling and Owen). About to begin.

There is a lovely buzz here and we really must attend more events at this Festival next year.

  1. Sounds like a good event. My brother lives in Hereford and always goes to events at the Hay Festival. It's definitely worth making the effort.

    1. It was excellent Conrad, and the whole Festival is always superbly organised. Lynne's second event was fully booked which was very gratifying. A couple of years ago we heard two excellent talks by Jim Crumley and Stephen Venables.

    2. Sounds great - and Lynne must be very proud of her achievements.

    3. Thanks from Lynne Martin. A most enjoyable day and the lunch event was sold out which was gratifying.
