Hugely successful at last year’s BridLit, our fabulous foursome return with a new programme of words and music to help us reflect and meditate on this special Sunday of Remembrance. Matt Harvey has been described by The Guardian as “not only funny, but tender and true”. Daniel Marcus Clark is an award-winning writer, story-teller and composer combining spoken stories with music and sound. Saxophonist Andy Williamson and pianist Philip Clouts are jazz musicians with stellar credits too many to mention. You would be mad to miss such entertainment with a delicious Sunday lunch.

‘You are all Invictus, you are now ambassadors for the spirit of these games. Never Stop fighting and do all you can to lift up everyone around you …’
Prince Harry spearheaded The Invictus Games which change and save lives. The 3rd Invictus Games take place this Autumn in Toronto, open to both current and former servicemen and women who have been wounded, injured or damaged in some way. The challenges are not for winning but the achievement of the start line. All have been through the darkest of times but in the camaraderie of competition there is light in hope. Boris Starling’s Unconquerable upholds a message of self-determination, positivity and sacrifice and he introduces some of those competitors whose stories of courage are unforgettable.

Keggie Carew grew up in the gravitational field of an unorthodox father who lived on his wits and dazzling charm. As his memory began to fail, she embarked on a quest to unravel his story and found herself on a far more astonishing journey than she had bargained for. Winner of the Costa Award for biography, Keggie’s book is a detective story, a family history, a thrilling tale of derring-do - a poignant memoir by a daughter of an adored father. It charts a technicolour life of an irresistible man.
