Barnet Medieval Festival – a review – and preview?

Where does an aspiring Ricardian author go to sell books? Medieval festivals of course, among a variety of other events.

And what was my first such festival? Funnily enough, it was at the site of King Richard’s first battle…

And after I’d attended, the Mid-Anglia Branch of the Richard III Society asked me if I would submit a review of this relatively new festival for their newsletter. Would I? Of course. You can find it at:

I had a wonderful time at the festival and was delighted to hear it would be running again, on the weekend of 8-9th June 2019, and likely bigger and even better – and hopefully still free to enter! Details can be found at:

Sadly I won’t be there this year (I have a daughter with both a big birthday and a punishing exam schedule around then), but hope to be back for 2020… and who knows, perhaps with a new book?

I am, however, hoping to attend various other festivals during 2019. Watch this space…
