Dom Joly: The women wore wedding gowns and the men wept

I woke up to a village with no bunting, so I presumed that we weren't having a street party, which was a relief. I headed off out to the shops to buy a couple of bottles of Scotch ready to settle down in front of the telly to decide which was the worst location given to a BBC correspondent.

The Scottish distiller Glenfiddich has been hosting an artists-in-residence programme since 2002. The artists have come from far and wide. Having turned up with an open mind at the distillery in the Highlands, they get to stay in a cottage on the estate for three months, and there they muse upon the nature of the place, its industry, its history, and make work – photographs, animations, sculpture, paintings, video installations. This exhibition is a selection of works from those residencies.

Smoke Fairies, Scala, London

Binocular and Whisky make Henderson happy

Just about the only thing that did not go to plan yesterday for Nicky Henderson was that the helicopter due to take him from Lambourn to Ffos Las was grounded by high winds.
