The week before panto and if you are not quite ready for slapstick British humour at its best then why not try a different kind of comedy? One Man Two Guvnors opens at the Archway for a 10 night run on Tuesday 3rd December. The play that made James Cordon into a superstar (sort of). I am looking forward to this. Full ticket and timing details here:

BOOKS; As we draw to a close in 2019, thoughts turn to what books we would like to find under our Christmas tree on the 25th. Bookshops and newspapers are giving their best reads of 2019. For what it’s worth, this is one of mine.
American Spy by Lauren Wilkinson was highlighted by no less than Barak Obama as one of his summer reads. It has an absorbing story and is loosely based on real life events. It turns the espionage thriller on its head. Try it and see.
Look out for the top books from local authors coming next week.
