An Evening with Michael Palin

We were very privileged to have Michael Palin at The Britannia Royal Naval College on 27th September 2018. Around 450 people attended making this our biggest event so far!

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.

Book Signing with Raynor Winn

The uplifting true tale of a couple who lost everything and embarked on a journey of salvation across the windswept South West coastline.

Just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of 32 years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall.

Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

The Salt Path is an honest and life-affirming true story of coming to terms with grief and the healing power of the natural world. Ultimately, it is a portrayal of home, and how it can be lost, rebuilt and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.

Talk and Signing with Andrew Wilson

Andrew gave a fantastic talk to Agatha Christie fans!

Andrew gets his inspiration for his books from actual events that happened to Agatha, during her extremely fascinating, and sometimes very mysterious life!

A Different Kind Of Evil 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.
