Patrick Wright

Patrick Wright, cultural historian, author and broadcaster (King’s College London, former presenter of BBC Radio 3 Night Waves arts programme and former resident of 5 St. Radigunds Street) recently got in touch to enthusiastically describe You Are Here as…

a splendid antidote to the so-called new nature writing, and proof of the epic potential of ‘local’ studies.

He also shared a couple of lovely anecdotes from his time as a student in Canterbury: seeing Steve Hillage fishing in the Stour by St. Radigunds Bridge while practicing guitar, and helping Martin Cockerham of Spirogyra stickering streetsigns to promote their (now cult classic) album Bells, Boots and Shambles.
