In Conversation with Robert Webb
*This event has now been cancelled, those who have purchased a ticket or book will contacted in due course*
In association with Forum Books we're thrilled to welcome actor, comedian and award winning author Robert Webb, for an evening of conversation and to discuss his debut novel Come Again.
Robert Webb is best known for his work as the Webb half of Mitchell & Webb in the Sony award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Sound and the Bafta award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Look, and as permanent man-boy Jeremy in the acclaimed Peep Show. In 2017, his call-to-arms memoir How Not To Be a Boy was a number one Sunday Times bestseller.
Our Afternoon Tea features our finest homemade cakes, sandwiches and scones.
Served informally, this is about claiming back time to spend with family or friends over a leisurely afternoon of freshly prepared, home-cooked food.
