I’m delighted to be part of the Idler Festival, 8-10 July 2022. Our theme will be Rest and Resistance. Philosophy, husbandry and merriment will abound in the bucolic retreat of Fenton House, gardens and orchard in Hampstead.

Other speakers, musicians, dancers, comedians, beekeepers, agony aunts, surrealists and cartoonists will include:

Comedians Sally Phillips and Arthur Smith, surrealist Glen Baxter, Idler editor Tom Hodgkinson, zoologist Lucy Cooke, playwright and actor Ben Moor, journalist Rowan Pelling, historian Matthew Green, story teller David Bramwell, classicist Harry Mount, beekeeper Bill Anderson, dancing master Oliver Broadbent of the Mudflappers and our wandering minstrel Will Summers.
