Spotting famous faces in Cottiers
by Hilary D
I know this is silly, but I got talking to world famous author Louis de Bernieres in Cottiers Bar.
You know, the guy who wrote 'Captain Correli's Mandolin'. He's really nice, short and bald with a lovely cheery smile.
Don't get me wrong - I wasn't stalking or anything!
He was giving a reading of this possible new play he was developing, in Cottiers theatre, with the help of acting students. I had a ticket, and I really enjoyed the evening.
I just didn't expect to be having a natter with the Great Man himself! He even had the grace to sign by beloved copy of Captain Corelli.
What a nice man.
And what a nice bar they have in Cottiers. Sunny and bright in summer, cosy and welcoming with a real fire in winter. I need nothing more!
