Fiesta! Bonus Pics #1

I thought you'd like to see the location of the Cheltenham Screenwriters Festival... (click to embiggen).

This is the main building, the "Manor on the Lake" it's not that old really, only about 150 years. Nice meeting rooms on the ground floor with lovely panelled walls and ornate ceilings all in excellent condition. The upper floor has offices, very nice.

This is the view down the garden, the tents in the distance are part of the event, including the main theatre pavilion and the cafeteria. Staffed by a film/TV location caterer, of course.

It also has the very nice toilet block that was getting pumped out inconveniently yesterday during the Scriptbites.

This is the view of cafeteria. The two gentlemen entering are regular breakfast partners of mine. this is also the location of the Scriptbite mini-sessions. As you can see the tables really are round so when I say "round-table" I mean it.

Ooops, I was sure there was an option to turn this through 90 degrees. No time to mess about now.

The man in the middle is Tony Jordan himself, gentleman wide-boy and market trader.

And one of the driving forces behind the transformation the UK screenwriting scene.

And there you go. Last day today, and it's not sunny.

What's on the turntable? "Edith and the Kingpin" by Joni Mitchell from "Hissing of Summer Lawns" (I have lots of Joni Mitchell, basically she's a poet.)
