Festival called off as autumnal weather batters Cheltenham

The Great British Cheese Festival had to be called off yesterday because the weather was so bad. Hail, thunder, lightening and 25mm of rain in an hour proved too much for the tents in Montpellier Gardens, Cheltenham (and for my internet connection). How sad especially as the festival was advertised as "1 sensational day out - whatever the weather".

Let’s hope that we have better weather next weekend when Gordon Brown comes to town. He’ll be peddling his new book, Moving Britain Forward, as part of the Literature Festival. His talk is in a real building with a real roof so he should be safe from real storms even though he’s clearly not immune to political ones.....
