Outdoor poetry and all that
I was going to write a post about our weekend in Cornwall, but I've had a somewhat hectic week and Dunk beat me to it, so you can pop over here to his blog and read his post instead; there is a youtube clip and links to some of the performers we saw as part of the September Festival in St Ives. It was a wonderful eclectic mix of performance poetry, folk and rock music all taking place in Norway Square, a dozen square yards of walled garden squashed between the jumbled houses, where the performers battled interruptions from a passing ambulance, a persistent car alarm and a circling helicopter. All good fun, and certainly a temptation to return and stay longer another time, they have a literature festival in the spring.
