Capital of Culture Year Starts!
Yesterday I went to buy one of the official Guides to Capital of Culture Year - more of a souvenir brochure than a guide you take out with you. It's a great publication for a fiver - and flicking through it made me realise just what a variety of things there are going on this year (and that's with the knowledge that not everything will be covered in the book). We've got a couple of things coming up. Later this week we are off to an event at the new Arena - which has been put on to make sure ambassadors and other supporters have all the info they need about what's on offer there. And then a week later there is the big "People's Opening" event by St Georges Hall. Given that that one is outside I hope all these predictions of sub zero temperatures are not that accurate!
