Description

Join us for a celebration of The Gritterman by Orlando Weeks. There will be a singing and also a performance of some of the music accompanying this beautiful book.

'Sometimes it feels like I might be the only person awake in the whole country. People might find that a lonely thought. Not me...'

As the rest of the world sleeps, the Gritterman goes out to work. Through the wind and the snow. Through the blue-black hours when time slips away, he grits the paths and the pavements and the roads. For him, a life without gritting is no life at all...

A song for the unsung hero, this is a story about stoicism, dignity and a man leaving behind the work that he loves. It is accompanied by the author's own illustrations.

Orlando Weeks studied illustration at Brighton University before spending a decade in the band, The Maccabees. In 2016, when the group decided to disband he set about writing The Gritterman, his first book.

As always tickets cost £5 and include a glass of wine and £4 off purchases made on the night.
