Short Stories Event: Does He Really Do More Of That..?!

with Philip Douch

Saturday 19th October 2024 at 7.30pm

Philip’s Back!

His hugely successful tour is coming to Minchinhampton.

Amongst other delights Philip promises us the tale of a man who makes matchstick models of HMS Dreadnought and a hilarious take-down of chick lit romance – ably abetted by his co-readers Christina Heward-Mills and Jenny Nixon. Expect some more highlights from Stroud’s freegle recycling network (yes, really).… and apparently there may also be a smattering of sex (but only in the stories, you understand).

Philip has read twice at the Cheltenham Literature Festival (quite impressive); too many times to count at Stroud Short Stories and Story Fridays in Bath (quite fun); in the dark on the back of a land rover (quite dangerous); and at a pirates party (quite dressed up). He does know that it is ambiguous to say that he also once closed the Nailsworth Festival.

Here’s what some (non-financially rewarded) people were sufficiently stimulated to say about him last year:

“Really really fun”


“We all had a fabulous time and we all talked about it on the way home.”

“A huge high… I haven’t laughed so much for ages”

It really was a wonderfully warm and welcoming evening.’
