An extra talk to those previously booked was given by Nicholas Coleridge CBE who gave a fascinating insight into his life starting with life between school and uni as a cub reporter on the Falmouth Packet newspaper, progressing to working with such well known publications as Tatler and the Evening Standard, in 1982 receiving the British Press Awards Young Journalist of the Year. This was followed by a distinguished career with Conde Nast and the V & A Museum. He is currently chairman of not only Conde Naste Britain but of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Prince of Wales Campaign for Wool and of the Gilbert Trust for the Arts to mention a few!
Even with such a busy life he managed to find a ‘cosy’ home in Worcestershire namely Wolverton Hall where with his wife he raised a family of 4 sons and where he attempts to spend as many weekends as possible his favourite place being the garden where he writes the odd novel or 2 in longhand, only fitting for a descendant of the brother of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
