Congratulations to all those involved in the organisation of the Gravity Fields Festival. All the events and talks I attended were well presented and I found them to be most interesting - and in several cases, mind provoking!
However, I was rather surprised when I went to attend a talk at the King’s School and was greeted by a sign which stated that there was ‘No parking for Gravity Fields’. I therefore parked in the Watergate car park and walked back to the school where I eventually found someone who said that the talk was in the Old School building on Church Street, but I would need to walk all the way round via Swinegate as the direct access through the school was locked.
For a school that is, presumably, proud of its association with Sir Isaac Newton, I find it very disappointing that it did not seem interested in adopting a more positive attitude to the event. Surely this would have been an ideal opportunity to put on its own show in support of the talk and promote its own image.
