An Evening with David Sedaris

Saturday 8 February 2025, 7pm
To see Sedaris live is pure joy. To watch this bookish, culotte-evangelising man read his life’s work on stage is word-nerd heaven, best topped off by spending three minutes with his full attention at the book-signing table after a show. The Saturday Paper
The happy-go-unlucky Sedaris is forever being frustrated, humiliated or downright annihilated, and the mishaps he chronicles probably explain why readers feel so fondly protective towards him. The Guardian UK

General Public Thur 27 June 10am


Presented by Token Events & Show and Tell
