Habeas Corpus a sell out – Almost!

Thrills, not spills, at Literary Lunch

We are thrilled (if you’ll pardon the intentional pun) to be hosting our next Literary Lunch with thriller writer Martin O’Brien on Friday 10th March at noon. 

Martin was travel editor at British Vogue for a number of years, and as a travel and life-style correspondent he has contributed to a wide range of international publications. As well as writing the Daniel Jacquot detective series (“Rich, spicy, and served up with unmistakeable relish” – The Literary Review), he has also written straight-to-paperback thrillers under the name Jack Drummond (“Big, high-pitched disaster novels don’t come much more thrilling than this” – The Daily Mirror). His latest Daniel Jacquot book, ‘Talking to the Sharks’, published last summer received excellent reviews.

Tickets are £25 and include a two course lunch plus tea or coffee. There is also a licensed bar. So pick up a booking form from Minchinhampton Market Stores, Taylors Butchers, Munchinhampton Cafe or Amberley Post Office. 

An Entertainment for Summertime

The magnificent Minpins children’s choir is coming to the Market House on Saturday 21 May. Part of Stroud Choral Society, the Minpins took their name from Roald Dahl’s last children’s book, so it is appropriate that the event – named ‘An Entertainment for Summertime’ – will be presented by writer and broadcaster Brough Girling, chairman of SCS and founder of the reading charity Readathon, of which Roald Dahl was the chairman and an ardent supporter.

The Minpins will be joined by the A Cappella singers ‘Copious Notes’ and ‘Nuts in May’, the actors’ company.

Tickets are £10 and available from Market Stores Minchinhampton. There will also be a licensed bar in aid of the Market House and Minpins charities.Minpins Poster
