12th Bridport Literary Festival
Wednesday 9 November at 6.30 pm The Electric Palace
The organisers of the Bridport Literary Festival are delighted to welcome ALAN TITCHMARSH to the Electric Palace to talk with journalist Rene Wyndham about his life in the spotlight. Without doubt, Alan is a National Treasure whose hugely popular Gardener’s World series and Ground Force series have made him one of the country’s best loved television presenters. He was the star of The Alan Titchmarsh Show for ITV for eight years and is now host of Masterpiece, his new television series - a games show featuring antique treasures.
The author of over 40 books on gardening and gardening guides, Alan has also written three volumes of autobiography as well as seven best selling novels which have won him a whole new readership.
Alan’s eighth novel: Mr. Gandy’s Grand Tour is guaranteed to be another hit.
The hero of the book, Timothy Gandy, has for 40 years aspired to abandon his humdrum existence and embark on a Grand Tour of Europe, following in the footsteps of eighteenth century aristocrats. When the opportunity arises, he is propelled into adventures that he could never have foreseen and which amount to a voyage of self-discovery as well as the wonders of humankind found in unexpected places.
