Lunch time launch today for the 20th Aspects Festival, on board The Barge at Lanyon Quay - and very pleasant it was too. The sun came out, Marie Louise Muir officially launched the programme, I read a couple of poems and then everyone enjoyed a buffet lunch including oysters and smoked salmon. What's more, the line up for the festival looks great.
