This event has now taken place.

Add some thrilling drama to your reading habits as three remarkable actors take the stage.

He’s been in major movies, such as Patriot Games, and worked with Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood but Hugh Fraser’s role as the dapper Captain Arthur Hastings, faithful friend to Hercule Poirot (played by David Suchet) was ideal training for him to turn his own hand at crime writing. Hugh will take to the stage to discuss his trilogy of thrillers, Malice, Harm and Threat.

George Costigan is an actor most famously known for Rita, Sue and Bob Too, Shirley Valentine and Calendar Girls. His debut novel, The Single Soldier was hailed as a ‘magnificent beast of a book’ by playwright Willy Russell, set in France during the German Occupation.

Emmerdale star Mark Charnock has become a household name playing Marlon Dingle. The self-confessed zombie obsessive has turned his hand to writing his first novel, Unquiet, for Young Adults. This promises to be a literary meeting of minds, full of cliff-hangers, thespian frolics, and dramatic twists.
