The Hay Festival has long been an object of some exoticism for us. Finally we had a chance to spend a few days in the area and participate. The talks were great, and this chap talked about the Glamour of Grammar, David Crystal signed my book, but I snapped this while in the queue.
The book shop in the tent at the Festival site was spacious, as it had to be when there were long queues of people waiting to have their books signed by the willing authors. This chap had to sit while waiting . . .
Normally I don’t like queueing, but my fellow audience members made for interesting subjects.
