These photographs are from Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2021. The atmosphere was spoiled due to Covid-19 still being about. Many people didn’t want to mix and talk with others. Some guest speakers had to cancel. This was due to either testing positive themselves, or self-isolating by being near someone who’d tested positive. We’re looking forward to an even better Festival next year, (2022).
The selection of photos below are from the Harrogate International Festivals website.
