College Talk

Yesterday I drove through heavy Welsh rain to Wrexham to give a talk to students taking the Welsh Baccalaureate. The Welsh settlement of Patagonia is part of the syllabus. There was a good-sized audience and they listened very well.

There is a prickliness to an audience of that age. I remember it well. They do not feel they have to please. Instead, they expect to entertained, and they are as merciless to a minor 'celebrity' (TV presenter, radio producer, MP) as they are to a familiar teacher. So, as neither celebrity or teacher, I feel fortunate that I got away with it.
