I’ve just been confirmed as a guest speaker for the The Herstmonceux Science Centre Astronomy Festival 2007. I’ll be based at the BBC Sky at Night table throughout the day, so do please come up and say hello. I’m booked to give a lecture about The Sun Kings (what else?). I also hope that my special guest at the lecture will be Norman Keer, who lived in Richard Carrington’s house and observatory before it was demolished. Norman helped enormously in the early stages of the book and can certainly be considered one of the world’s experts on Richard Carrington. The festival takes place on the 7th, 8th & 9th of September. I’ll be there on the 8th.
