An Audience with Anthony Horowitz

Anthony Horowitz is one of the most versatile writers in contemporary times. Screen writer of the perennially popular ‘Midsomer Murders’ and ‘Foyles War’, Anthony is also a massively well regarded novelist who has penned official sequels to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic Sherlock Holmes stories and Ian Fleming’s ‘James Bond’ books.

In his latest crime novel, Anthony has created a fascinating character in Detective Daniel Hawthorne. His story offers an intriguing and fresh take on the form with the author himself firmly implicated in a fiendish plot that will keep crime fans on the edge of their seats throughout. Join Anthony for a unique insight into his life, writing and as he introduces his latest novel, ‘The Word is Murder’.

Tonight’s admission includes a hardback edition of the novel which Anthony will sign as a memento of this special evening.

In Conversation with Matt Lucas

‘One of the biggest and most talented comedy stars the UK has ever presented’ – Peter Capaldi

‘The thing is, this is a bit different to most memoirs you may have read, because it comes in the form of an A–Z. For instance, B is for Baldy! – which is what people used to shout at me in the playground (not much fun), G is for Gay (because I’m an actual real life gay) and T is for TARDIS (because I’m a companion in Doctor Who now). You get the sort of thing.’
– Matt Lucas

An award-winning comedian, actor and writer, Matt Lucas is one of the nation’s most recognisable stars. He discovered major success with co-star David Walliams in Little Britain and Come Fly With Me. Matt received much praise for his work onstage in Les Misérables and has since gone on to feature in many successful films and TV shows including: Alice in Wonderland, Bridesmaids, Paddington, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and now Doctor Who. This is his story.
