Went to me first Literary Festival event yesterday, David Starkey's talk at the new academy. It was good! The talk, not so much the academy, it's nice and modernlooking but there is a bit of a prison quality to it.
David Starkey lives round this way, did you know that? He said "nine miles" from where the talk was (Folkestone Academy), so where does that make it? Further than Saltwood which would have been my guess, out in the sticks somewhere. Maybe Etchinghill?
