Free weekend of Arts & Culture for all, 18 July, 23 July and 2 August

Today I attended Creative Thursday as part of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival and what an informative, lively and enjoyable day it was.  I will be writing a review blog post early next week when I have had time to transcribe my notes.  I am attending the full Festival this year as I enjoyed last year so much and I will be posting reviews on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday events that I attend as part of my Weekend Rover ticket, but as I will be in the thick of it, so to speak, I will leave my reviews until I have attended the full Festival. 

I have come home with lots of ideas of where to go with my crime novel next and am bursting with new plot twists and new-found knowledge of crime scenes from the point of view of the police officers first on the scene.  More to follow.

Meanwhile, thanks to Alex Chisholm at the WYPH for the following information that I thought my followers would be interested in seeing:
