Having spent last weekend at the fab Festival of Romance 2012, it was inevitable that I’d want to show you some moments from over the three days.
I’m going to save my voice for the RNA social events ahead of me, and let my photos talk for themselves.
We’ll start with some glimpses of Friday evening, which culminated in the Gala Dinner.
