Vale the incomparable Mungo MacCallum. Mungo was closely involved with Byron Writers Festival since its inception and will be fondly remembered by Festival audiences as the instigator of lively, irreverent discussion, often with a glass of red wine in hand. Thank you to Russell Eldridge for writing this wonderful tribute to his extraordinary life and work.
