Keep the Aspidistra Flying! (In the Footsteps of George Orwell)

Join us ‘Coming Up For Air’ in the Chilterns to discover George Orwell’s ‘golden country’. His childhood here in the Oxfordshire countryside can be see to have influenced passages in some of his writing and as we walk it is not difficult to find ourselves in both 1984 and his earlier novel Coming Up for Air.
