It’s Sunday night, 16 September and I’m preparing to return home tomorrow. There are strains of a lovely jazz concert coming from the Old Bank Hotel, really soulful and pensive which sort of sums up how I feel right now.
It’s been a eventful visit actually, apart from my recording the programme for BBC Radio 3 and visiting Chedworth and Cirencester, I spent all day last Friday at a conference about Theorising Performance which was very interesting and there were lots of overlaps between the idea of performance and poetry readings. I then went to a lovely launch party and supper at Magdalen for Oliver Taplin’s latest book. We had an open-air supper under the cloisters at Magdalen and it was great catching up with so many people I know and meeting new ones.
Anyway, back to the packing!
