With Robin Ince
Robin Ince is co-presenter of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 show and podcast, The Infinite Monkey Cage. He has toured his award-winning stand-up across the world, both solo and with his radio double-act partner, Professor Brian Cox.
In Autumn 2021, Robin’s stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Rather than do nothing, he decided he would instead go on a tour of over a hundred bookshops, from Wigtown to Penzance; from Swansea to Margate.
Packed with anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac follows Robin up and down the country in his quest to discover just why he can never have enough books. It is the story of an addiction and a romance, and of an occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.
Event runs from 7.30-9pm.
Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions. Bookings are handled by the Mercury Theatre. Book online or call the Mercury Theatre box office on 01206 573948.
