A Night In with Mel Giedroyc

Wed 20 Jan 2021

Have you ever felt as if you’re losing your grip?

Sally Parker is struggling to find the hero inside herself. All she wants to do is lie down. Her husband has lost his business, their home and their savings, in one fell swoop. Their bank cards are being declined. The children have gone feral. And now the bailiffs are at the door.

What does an ordinary woman do when the bottom falls out?

Join Mel Giedroyc – much-loved comedian, writer, actor and presenter - to celebrate the publication of her new book The Best Things: a funny, tender, timely story about a family on the brink.

Mel has been entertaining the nation for nearly thirty years and is best known for her work with Sue Perkins in the double act Mel & Sue, in shows such as the multi-BAFTA-winning The Great British Bake Off. Now, Mel has turned her incredibly talented hand to writing. Spend an evening with her as she explores the process of writing her first novel, where she found inspiration for her flawed but fantastic characters, and how she brought her trademark humour to the page.

Don’t miss the chance to spend an entertaining and life-affirming evening with one of our national treasures.
