Churchill, Blenheim Literary Festival, Oxford
One thing incidentally I am glad to report is that for those concerned by stories in the popular press about 20ft high Nazi swastikas being hung recently from the entrance to the palace during the filming of the latest ‘Transformers’ movie, be reassured… you have nothing to fear.
Woodstock is still the 200 per cent Englishy twee village it always has been (and will be) and Blenheim is still a smart, snappy salute to the memory of Britain’s greatest leader.
Plus, the ubiquitous gift shop is well worth a 15-minute tour
