What is art? What is the difference between Tracey Emin’s My Bed and Botticelli’s Primavera? Have we reached a stage where almost anything can be called art?

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world. Michael Wood
