You’ll see from the timetable they’ve posted that I’m giving my Guest of Honour address on Sunday morning at 10.30 – something which doesn’t scare me as much as it once would have. In fact, it doesn’t scare me at all, Baldrick. Twenty months of fatherhood have made me into an entirely tougher, more functional person in the hours before noon.
