A brief update today, ahead of a longer one later in the month.
A further festival meeting was held on April 23rd, and updates on events were as follows. The two pre-festival talks are proving successful. Barry Crump will hold a second talk on July 27th if enough people sign-up, and the other talk on July 9th by John Oxley and Janet Hopton is proving popular too.
The first walk for this year’s festival has been arranged. Red Brick York will tour York city centre, from King’s Manor to Red Tower, led by Ian Tempest.
Bill and Martin are working with York St John University to arrange a student to help with the festival in the coming months. The intern will help with social media, publicity and organising events, as well as being an extra contact point for the festival.
