What to Expect:

A fictionalised exploration of British and European identity one year after the Referendum that has left a country divided and an unsure future ahead. 

On June 24th, 2016, Mike McCarthy wakes up to the news that Britain has voted to leave the EU. A committed European, he is shattered. Over the coming weeks and months, he takes a long hard look at himself, determined to uncover the reasons why this has happened. As he tries to cope with the inevitability of Brexit, Mike fondly recalls his visits to Europe as a young man, his relationships and how these molded his pan-European outlook. In Catch 52 author P. G. Ronane explores the effects felt from the vote in a smart, witty and entertaining manner.

Doors open at 7:00pm for 7:30pm start

What to Expect:

a novel about Laurel and Hardy.

 An extraordinary reimagining of the life of one of the greatest screen comedians the world has ever known: a man who knew both adoration and humiliation; who loved, and was loved in turn; who betrayed, and was betrayed; who never sought to cause pain to others, yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake . . .

And whose life was ultimately defined by one relationship of such tenderness and devotion that only death could sever it: his partnership with the man he knew as Babe.

he is Stan Laurel.
But he did not really exist.

What to Expect:

RULES FOR BEING A MAN:

 

Don't Cry

Love Sport

Play Rough

Drink Beer

Don't Talk About Feelings

 ‘Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It’s profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it’

JK Rowling

But Robert Webb has been wondering for some time now: are those rules actually any use? To anyone?

Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life

 

‘Timely and candid, told with great humour, warmth and compassion. A much-needed contribution to the vital conversation about the damage gender can do.’ – Juno Dawson

 

‘Takes us deftly from hilarity about his clumsy attempts to attract girls, to the heart-stopping hurt of the sudden loss of his beloved mother, “the best person” in his life ... A truly great read, full of heart’ – Dawn French

Venue:
Heswall Hall

Heswall Hall 111 Telegraph Rd, Heswall, Wirral CH60 0AF

Tickets:
£10.00

Ticket redeemable against the book, includes coffee/tea.
