If you haven’t:

a) Why not?

b) It’s not too late to apply

I’ve been planning, with Bridgett Forman, for the workshops that we’ll be running through the week of the summer school, which this year is at Queen Margaret’s School in Escrick near York.

Tall Stories is brand new this year. It will combine digital storytelling with stage production to put on a show that combines multimedia production and performance. It looking very exciting and innovative.

So don’t miss out – book it in your diary for July 23rd – 30th, book, pay up and travel to York to join in. See you there.

These gently swaying restaurants have always been a classy public place where even grubby standard class passengers could taste first-class treatment. As a waiter on the East Coast service recalls, lone diners would complain about being seated together, but once the wine started flowing they would all be chatting and swapping business cards. “The deals that got done in this car,” he sighs.

Patrick Barkham sums up the experience of travelling in style on the East Coast Main Line. Sad that the dining cars are being shunted off the tracks in the new timetable.
