Last year I went to the Garden Museum's Garden Literary Festival which was held at Tom Stuart Smith's garden. I enjoyed my day there so much I decided that this year I would attend the whole weekend so I booked immediately when the tickets came on sale. This year it was held at Petworth House, a National Trust property and the home of Lord and Lady Egremont. I had never been to Petworth and it is a bit of a distance from me, but I looked it up and the lure of the festival was too strong. Knowing that the festival was to be held in the family's own private part of the gardens added to the attraction.
