David Nicholls, bestselling author of One Day and Us, will be joining us over tea and cake to discuss his next highly anticipated novel, Sweet Sorrow.

Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating, Sweet Sorrow is a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out.

Tickets are either £7.50 for admission plus tea and cake, or get yourself a bargain with our £17.50 tickets which also include a personally signed hardback copy of the book (RRP £20).

One life-changing summer

Sixteen-year-old Charlie meets Fran…

Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don’t remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread.

Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope.

But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling.

The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare.
