Whiteway Colony History Festival

With Richard Blair outside ‘Freedom’

This weekend I was at Whiteway Colony in the Cotswolds, which was founded in 1898 as a Tolstoyan commune. I had the pleasure of interviewing Richard Blair, son of George Orwell, who stayed at Whiteway as a child while his dad was ill with tuberculosis. (He was looked after by the great Lillian Wolfe). You can listen to the interview here.

With Richard Blair & Ian McEwan

Then I spoke a bit about some of the folk that have lived at or visited Whiteway – including Prince Kropotkin, Captain Jack White, Kleber Claux, and Gandhi.
