I rounded off my Young Bond – Shoot to Kill tour in style at BGS. The grandeur of the Great Hall made for a memorable venue, and the high level of preparation (always appreciated by an author!) meant that I knew all would run to plan. However, the make-or-break element of a large event like this comes down to the audience – 300 children in this case. I was delighted to find them a switched-on, sparky group, eager to participate but also good listeners and – best of all – intelligent with their questions.
I last visited BGS some years ago. I hope it won’t be as long again before I’m invited back!
