Vanessa, she's going to be in Harrogate on 22 Aug and Richmond, North Yorks, the next night. If either of those are near enough I'd definitely recommend it. Writing up blog post now and I'll post the link.

Harrogate is about 25 miles away from me and Richmond is about 55. I'll have to see if I can persuade someone to come with me to Harrogate! Thanks for that, Miss Moppet.

I would make a day of it if I were you! I love shopping in Harrogate, also eating at Betty's.

My post about the evening is here.

Yes, Betty's is lovely! When I lived in North Leeds, I used to shop in Harrogate quite a bit. Now I'm nearer York, I shop there. Luckily there is a Betty's in York, too! :D

You sound to have had a good evening and PG's talk sounds very interesting.
