An Evening with TVs Nick Knowles

Best known for building homes on DIY SOS, or testing general knowledge on Who Dares Wins, Nick Knowles has now turned his hand to nutrition and wellbeing following his life-changing BBC2 series, The Retreat.

Nick will be visiting the Croston Theatre at Westholme School on Wednesday 18 January to talk about his new book Proper Healthy Food and to provide a fascinating insight in the extraordinary story behind this. Tickets are £14.99 (plus booking fee) and include a copy of Nick’s book which he will sign on the night.

In 2015, Nick was feeling unhealthy, out of shape and on the verge of burning out. Determined to change his lifestyle, he travelled to Thailand with a camera crew and fellow DIY SOS stars Billy Byrne and Julian Perryman for a detox, involving a week-long fast followed by a purely vegan diet. The results? He lost 9 kilos in 3 weeks, his cholesterol fell by a third and his blood pressure dropped to a healthy leve.

A year on, Nick eats a vegan or vegetarian diet, with the odd day off, and is slimmer, healthier and fitter than ever. His book Proper Healthy Food is packed with 100 mouth-watering and surprisingly easy recipes.
