Outside the shopping centre Mr Monkey found a small square of fake turf with some deck chairs advertising the Old Peculier crime writing festival next to a hut selling tickets for Harrogate Festival events. He decided not to sit down to read the books they'd left out on the table, or to play quoits. Instead he scampered down Montpellier Parade so that his humans could have lunch at Hedley's restaurant.
You can read about the Harrogate Festival at the Harrogate International Festivals website.
