Today was the second day of the Huddersfield Food & Drink Festival, an annual event lasting four days, which, apparently regularly attracts 65,000 to St. George’s Square in the centre of town.
This evening there was a lovely atmosphere in the Square as people ate, drank and listened to music. This raised two important issues in my mind:
- Why don’t the British gather in the open more often? Are we that scared of the weather that we have to be dragged out of our houses to meet each other? and
- Why is the wonderful space in the centre of Huddersfield empty so much of the time? It is our space, let’s make much more use of it.
