Robert Lacey gave readings from his Great Tales from English History. I thought this session was a bit of a letdown.
In the evening we went to hear David Wishart talk about whisky:
The conventional way to classify Scotch malt whiskies is by region - Highland, Lowland, Speyside, Islay and Campbeltown. But knowing where they are made doesn't explain how they taste.Well now we do because there was a well-stocked and free tasting session after Mr Wishart's very interesting illustrated talk.
These guys were present providing some of the samples.
