It is with great regret that we announce that Simon died on 29th October, soon after entertaining a packed marquee with stories from his fascinating new book.
A moving Service of Thanksgiving for his life took place on Thursday 10th November at 2.30pm in the Choir and Nave at Wells Cathedral, followed by a reception in the Town Hall.
Simon’s involvement with the Wells Festival of Literature goes back many years and he was its inspirational Chairman from 2010 to 2013.
We plan to introduce a memorial event in his memory at future Festivals. In the meantime we would like to extend our sympathy to his family and friends at this sad time.
