Blenheim Palace Literary Festival.

The Nigerian novelist and Booker prize-winner Ben Okri made an appearance in an unusual event yesterday held in Woodstock. He was interviewed about his life, novels, poetry and love of music by the composer Michael Berkeley, presenter of BBC Radio 3 series Private Passions. Okri selected pieces of his favourite music, which were then performed for us live by the Orchestra of St John’s conducted by John Lubbock.
