Gig at the Portsmouth Diocesan Conference

badgeI had a fantastic time at the Portsmouth Diocesan Conference in Chichester. The talk went really well I think – everyone seemed to enjoy themselves anyway. I needn’t have worried about a pointing device – the gig was in a top class theatre with a huge screen so I wouldn’t have been able to reach the salient points with a pointer even if I’d have wanted to. Before my session I had the privilege of being seated on the VIP’s table at the Conference Dinner, which was rather splendid. Afterwards I went to the bar and sat at the table with the naughty priests. Oh, the stories I could tell. All in all a great 24 hours with a great bunch of people.

I didn’t sell any copies of my book, but that’s because I didn’t take any to sell. There was a good reason – it is being reprinted again, which I am pleased about. Hopefully it will be available again very shortly. I did sell a few calendars and cards to passers-by whilst sitting in the quadrangle during the afternoon. Very pleasant.

I’d quite like to do some more cartoon talks as I really did rather enjoy myself. If you know of any institutions or events that are looking for a cartoonist to come and show some drawings about the church whilst talking and perhaps waving a long pointy thing then get in touch. I do have very particular requirements for my dressing room etc, but we can talk about that sort of thing.

Update: the Portsmouth Diocesan website has a report of the conference here.
