David Crystal On an English language weekend
“I’ve frequently been asked to put on a summer course for people unable to attend the various lectures I give to schools, literary festivals, and the like, and an opportunity has now arisen to do so. The Ucheldre community arts centre in Holyhead (the name means ‘high town’ in Welsh) is having a fund-raising campaign, and I’ve agreed to present a weekend in support.”
