Idler Festival 2019 launch party

To the Idler Festival 2019 launch party last night at the National Trust's Fenton House in Hampstead, London, with the likes of Tom Hodgkinson (who gave a very funny self-deprecating welcome speech), Victoria Hull and Rowan Pelling in attendance. All very jolly and a really lovely garden (pictured above at last year's festival) - the house is worth a visit too, especially if you like harpsichords and virginals. More details about the festival here which has numerous literary attendees and runs July 12-14.
