robin ince hermione cockburnThis year we are introducing something (or someone) completely different for the supper – Robin Ince who is co-presenter with Brian Cox of the award-winning BBC Radio 4 show, The Infinite Monkey Cage. He has won the Time Out Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, was nominated for a British Comedy Award for Best Live show. The Observer called his book I’m a Joke and So Are You ‘joyfully entertaining… full of warmth, wisdom and affectionate delight in the wonder and absurdity of being human.’

Robin will be introduced by Dr Hermione Cockburn

Hermione was born and grew up in Cuckfield but moved to Edinburgh more than 25 years ago where she is currently the Scientific Director at Dynamic Earth. Her varied career has been based on an enduring passion to engage diverse audiences with science. Her BBC2 paleontology series included filming the story of Gideon Mantell and the Cuckfield dinosaur Iguanodon.

Tickets for the supper are £62.50 each for a two-course meal. You will be welcomed with a glass of Ridgeview sparkling wine accompanied by a selection of canapés. Tickets will be on sale from mid-August when the programme is published and are not available via Ticketsource. Please email Shauna Bevan at cuckfieldbookfest@outlook.com

Numbers are limited to 72 people, so early booking is advised. PLEASE NOTE: there is a maximum of four tickets per person applying and we trust that those attending the supper will also buy tickets for at least one of the Bookfest events.
