The Book and the Rose

Sometimes Council's do things right and I like the way Brighton and Hove mark St George's Day and Shakespeare's anniversary with The Book and the Rose festival. It will take place in Jubilee Square next Sunday on April 25.  This is the second year of the festival which tries to capture the spirit of a similar annual event in Barcelona, where it is considered good luck to exchange a book and a rose on St George’s Day or La Diada de Sant Jordi. (But I think men are supposed to get the book and women the rose...we should do it the other way round)
