August is HISS time - Historically Informed Summer School, and this is only the second, but twice as big as last year's. Overall - thumbs up! Big success and lots of happy punters. Already it's a success story, with an international dimension this year - but that also means a lot of work to keep it growing next year, and the biggest challenge is keeping the informality, friendliness, approachability and almost family feel, whilst still ensuring tight and efficient organisation. There'll have to be a few changes for next year . . .
Another exciting venture is about to keep me busy, though! That's taking on the position as Director of 20,000 Voices- singing all over Northumberland and the north east
