16Just a note to put a date in your diary if you are likely to be in London on Tuesday 29th July. I am giving a talk that evening at Guildhall Library – on Philip Astley, his life and achievements. I rather like the second part of the title: “From Westminster Bridge to the World” because he really was a remarkable man. The link to the Guildhall Library site for tickets is here.

Anyway, it starts at 18.00  and, allowing for the wine reception, goes on for a couple of hours.  I am looking forward to it – even if it is all a bit of a rush! I am due to get back from Canada that week, give a talk on a different subject that morning in the Cotswolds, and then will dash up to London in time for the talk and hopefully to meet as many people as possible.

As for the book, well, I cannot honestly say that it is “selling like hot cakes” – more “like warm scones,” but that is to be expected. You can find out more here (Britain) and here (the rest of the world). Amazon have included a couple of really nice reviews.Astleys Circus
