Event description

Description

Find out about the adventures of inventor, mechanic, TV presenter, former Wheeler-Dealer co-star and all-round English eccentric, Edd China, as he joins us here (at the larger of our two Milton Keynes stores) in conversation on 17th May to talk about his book ‘Grease Junkie’, from 6pm.

As co-presenter of Wheeler Dealers, Edd China entertained fans for 13 years, reaching 200 million global viewers at the show’s peak. However, he's first and foremost a mechanic, designer, engineer and inventor, with a gift for making complicated stuff easy and fixing almost anything. He's the car equivalent of the Supervet.

An unstoppable enthusiast from an early age, Edd had 35 on-going car projects housed in different locations while he was at university, not counting the double-decker bus he was living in. He looks back with fond memories on his beloved first car, a 1303c Texas yellow Beetle, the start of an continuing love affair with VW (even though it got him arrested for attempted armed robbery). He’s now a man with a road-legal sofa, bed, shed, bathroom and giant trolley. Whether building them from scratch or bringing bangers back from the brink, the orange-gloved garage god will always choose the path that takes him to the outer limits of human feasibility, and he’s got a lifetime of adventures to show for it. Edd China is a one-off. Grease Junkie is his story. Hold tight – it’s a surreal and speedy ride.

Tickets available online and in store, only £3 (and give you £3 off the cost of the book!)
