Julia on BBC Radio Manchester

Yesterday as I was posting about the BBC Manchester Blogging Workshop we're organising, Richard Fair (no, that's not him at left) was at Ordsall Hall speaking with blogger Julia Delvaux for BBC Radio Manchester. Some people get all the good jobs.

It turns out that Julia, whose blog Notebooks covers literature, art and cinema, is also a Tudor expert. Maybe with a little encouragement we can get her to put that knowledge to some more good use by expanding the Wikipedia entry for Ordsall Hall which is a haunted, 660 year old, Grade I listed Tudor mansion currently seeking donations to fund £1 million worth of TLC.

We've uploaded Julia's interview but, sadly, were unable to include the audio of Julia's debut performance on the hand-bells as part of our impromptu Tudor band. Doesn't fit very well into our station playlist you see...

(The photograph "Some Tudor bloke in the Medieval Star Chamber" was taken at Ordsall Hall and posted on flickr by John Warrander. We asked him before using it here. Cheers John!)

The blog and the photo was excellent. I wish I could be there. Happy Christmas and Happy New Year to BBC Radio Manchester from Miami Florida.
