- Some weren't quite as ready for the day as others, whether it was because they were awakened early by the local wildlife...
- ...or because of all the fabulous book stalls available to visit.
- Day two got rolling with an opening keynote by Christina Bashford.

- The keynote prompted some delegates to reflect on the experience of their own childhood violin lessons.
