We bring together two writers who have drawn upon very real concerns around the climate crisis to create their bold new novels. Bestselling author of A Song for Issy Bradley and The Museum of You Carys Bray returns with When the Lights Go Out, a beautifully realised story of a marriage and family put under pressure when one parent grows obsessed with prepping for the end of the world. Andrew Hunter Murray, known for his work on QI, Private Eye and No Such Thing as a Fish presents his debut novel The Last Day, a page-turning dystopia that imagines the world has stopped turning and the planet is forever divided into night and day. Chaired by Rosie Goldsmith.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.
