‘Discover Worthing!’ Judy Fox, the town council’s marketing lady, exclaimed sitting behind a table at the Leaflet Exchange event at Michelham Priory the other day.
‘No need, I live there’, I retorted.
‘Who are you?’
‘I am the Bald Explorer!’ I informed her and, do you know, I think she was impressed.
Anyway, I gathered a load of publicity brochures from all the exhibitors who were promoting exciting places in Sussex to visit. I told them they needed the enterprising Mr Vobes and his camera to explore their impressive castles, stunning gardens and magnificent heritage railways, and instead of blank faces, this suggestion was met with great enthusiasm.
So it seems I shall be busy this coming season investigating the best of Sussex’s attractions. I shall seek out the history and show off the beauty of destinations such as Bateman’s House and Gardens, Bodiam Castle, Penshurst Place, Coombes Farm and Bewl Water to name but a very small few. They’ll be interviews, demonstrations and participation. It’s going to be a hoot! Filmed in glorious HD and presented on the Bald Explorer channel.
I also aim to take the show to some venues and broadcast LIVE while out and about!
