Toby is masterful in his presentation! I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Sir Arthur's background, i.e. his education, writings, lifestyle, career etc.
A very cold evening, but definitely worth the go. It's a couple hour venue and worth every minute. Thank you Toby for sharing your knowledge with us and hope to see you again upon our return with friends in AUG 2018! Kris from Tucson,AZ

Thank TucsonCruising27

Hi Kris, I'm delighted that you enjoyed it so much! Thank you so much for joining me and you would be very welcome to come along again to one of my August walks in 2018 during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
