Festival Atmosphere

Just quick word on the general vibe of this year’s festival.
And this is it… ‘smart’ (as in fun, clever, stylish and urbane)
Though sometimes it is hard to spot the literary types among the myriad nationalities just coached in for their obligatory tour of Churchill’s birth place and all things ‘British’ (but if you look really hard they tend not to be the one’s whooping, screaming, laughing, and posing for ‘selfies’).
Instead - and often without the need for field-glasses - you might catch a pleasant smile, a knowing grin, a cheeky wink and best of all, good shoes.
