We’ve got Mark Rutterford, Mark Hynes, Adrian Paul, Clare Reddaway, Julie Hayman, Sally Gander, Elaine Miles and Steve Tuffin, with a veritable smorgasbord of delights! We go skydiving, indulging in a spot of hanky panky in the garden, riding on a cart to an execution as well as defrosting a freezer (weirder than you’d think!) and enjoying some good belly laughs along the way. We’ve got the wonderful Tracy and Jason playing their blend of pop and jazz for us in the bar. So come and join us – it’s going to be a great evening! Friday 30th June, Burdall’s Yard, BA1 5NH. Doors open at 7.15, stories start at 8.00, £5 on the doo
