A bit late I know but I’ve been busy!!

This year was the 20th Anniversary of the Heritage Open Day events. When I discovered this I was ashamed that I’d only been frequenting this gem of an event since 2009.  A veritable newbie.

This year I really enjoyed the Gloucester History Festival, (6-19September 2014).  Partly because I was asked to do a book talk and signing at the Folk Museum and was featured in this year’s Official Programme.  The talk went really well – I thought! – even though the printed ticket had the City Museum as the venue and consequently some people arrived late – not their fault!  An audience of about 40 people came to hear me speak about the research I undertook and what inspired me to write the novel.  I hadn’t done any public speaking in a very long time but surprised myself at how UN-nervous I was.  I’ve put this down to the fact that I was talking about something I know!

If you didn’t get to go to any events this year make a date in your diary for next year.  I can’t recommend it enough.

Heritage Open Days 10-13 September 2015.

The Gloucester History Festival usually takes place two weeks either side of these dates.
