Keep your fingers crossed it doesn’t rain too much between now and Sunday lunchtime! I’m scheduled to be performing then as part of York Literature Festival, in the Pavilion in Rowntree Park. But the Pavilion is right by the river, and if the river floods, the Pavilion floods!
The river was high, but not too high, on Wednesday, when I was at the Pavilion for a rehearsal. Vicky Harland of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Stephen Whittaker of City of York Council were there with me to try out all the equipment we need (see below).
Vicky and Stephen will be leading the Wildlife Walk through the park after the performance. Rowntree Park consists of 20 acres of Green Flag listed grounds, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we find there on the walk.
