Tony Robinson will be at St James Hawkey Hall to celebrate the completion of his book tour for the autobiography No Cunning Plan.

Sir Tony Robinson has a stellar career lasting over fifty years. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he reveals how the boy from South Woodford went from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver!, a pint-sized pickpocket desperately bleaching his incipient moustache, to comedy icon Baldrick, the loyal servant and turnip aficionado in Blackadder. Packed full of incident and insight, No Cunning Plan is a funny, self-deprecating and always entertaining read by a hugely popular actor, presenter and author.

Venue capacity: 600

Readings from Ruth Padel and Jacob Polley. " " " "Jacob Polley was born in Cumbria. His poetry and fiction is published by Picador and has won both the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and the Somerset Maugham Award. He teaches at Newcastle University. " " " "Jacob has a fourth book of poems, Jackself, out in November 2016. Jackself sees Jacob at the height of his powers. In one of the most original books of poetry to appear in the last decade, Jackself spins a kind of ‘fictionalized autobiography’ through nursery rhymes, riddles and cautionary tales, and through the many ‘Jacks’ of our folktale, legend, phrase and fable – everyman Jacks and no one Jacks, Jackdaw, Jack-O-Lantern, Jack Sprat, Cheapjack and Jack Frost. At once playful and terrifying, lyric and narratively compelling, Jackself is an unforgettable exploration of an innocence and childhood lost in the darker corners of Reiver country and of English folklore, and once more shows Polley as one of the most remarkable imaginations at work in poetry today. Jacob has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize 2016. " " " "‘Poetry that imbues the everyday, the tarnished and burnished, with the possibilities of the transcendent.’ The Guardian
