An evening with Michael Palin

We are very excited to announce an evening with Michael Palin this September.

In this major new work, Michael Palin – former Monty Python stalwart and much-loved television globe-trotter – brings to life the world and voyages of HMS Erebus, from its construction in the naval dockyards of Pembroke, to the part it played in Ross’s Antarctic expedition of 1839–43, to its abandonment during Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition, and to its final rediscovery on the seabed in Queen Maud Gulf in 2014. To help tell the story, he has travelled to various locations across the world – Tasmania, the Falklands, the Canadian Arctic – in search of local information, and to experience at first hand the terrain and the conditions that would have confronted Erebus and her crew.

Ticket details coming soon…

This is the second book in his exceptional crime series featuring Agatha Christie as detective. The books are based on real life events which happened in Mrs Christie’s life, and use them as the starting point for mysterious tales of murder and blackmail with her at their dark heart.

The first book A Talent for Murder fictionalised Agatha’s famous 10 day disappearance in December 1926, when she walked out of her family home and didn’t resurface until over a week later at the Swan Hotel in Harrogate. The new book follows Mrs Christie to Tenerife, a real life trip she made with her daughter in January 1927, and a tale of suicide and mysterious deaths on the sunny island… They’re fantastic books, perfect for any Agatha Christie fan, and have been praised for their intricate plots and sensitive handling of her private life.

Andrew is an absolute expert on Agatha Christie& this is an unmissable event for any fans of the Queen of Crime!
