Each year the festival brochure lands on my doormat and I sit with a cup of coffee and flick through the pages full of expectation and I am never disappointed. This year was no exception. With 135,000 tickets sold this year it has been hailed as the most successful festival so far.
I have to set myself a budget at the outset because it is so tempting to make more than a meal of this event. It can quickly become more of a banquet. My budget is quite small and this year I restricted myself to three events. Two were Locally Sourced and one was of personal interest to me and connected to my latest book, Blood Libel.
