Ive already booked to see Stuart Maconie who wrote one of my all time favorite books - Cider with Roadies (If you are a similar age to me and "Top of the Pops" on Christmas day was more important than the Queens speech or the Morcombe and Wise Christmas show, then you too may like this book). Even though Maconie is from the wrong side of the Pennines (Gilly), he appears to have lived a parallel life to me growing up. Ive also got tickets to see Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall (control yourself Lisa!!) Jo Brand, and Ive booked a walk in the woods with a bloke who knows his mushrooms. And thats just for starters! I love events like this.
Its brilliant if you live close by, but well worth making the effort if you fancy a few days here in the north. We also have running at the same time, the comedy festival which is called Grin Up North . Something to look forward to as
the nights draw in.
PS What did you all make of Wuthering Heights? I have to say that I didn't stick with it I'm afraid. Heathcliffes really bad Yorkshire accent annoyed me from the start - did it get any better?
