This time we are joined by:

  • Katy Wix, actress and writer, best known for being all over telly: Not Going Out, Torchwood, Outnumbered and Absolutely Fabulous
  • Ben Fergusson, novelist and editor, reading from his new novel, ‘The Spring of Kasper Meier’
  • The poet Philip Nanton is coming all the way from Bardados
  • And fresh off a smash run of his hit play, “Holes”, our BFF Tom Basden is back!

So the least you can do is hop on the tube for three poxy tube stations. You lazy sods.
