LIVE!!! GIRLS!!!!*

*Actually just one: me**
**And I’m 36, so aged out of being a girl half a lifetime ago.

OK, let’s try again:

LIVE!!!! HUMAN WOMAN!!!!! WHO IS ME!!!!!!!

I’m leaving the house to appear in three live shows this month:

1. One Track Minds, Thursday 19 May, 7.30pm at the beautiful Wilton’s Music Hall in east London. Each performer is talking about a piece of music that changed their life in some way; mine’s the song that begat The AllusionistClick here for tickets.

2. Ex Libris Live, Saturday 21 May, 7pm at Blackwell’s Bookshop in Oxford. Four of us will be playing the extremely fun word game Ex Libris, which I have never won. WILL THIS BE MY TIME? The three others are writers, so… probably not. Click here for info and tickets.

3. Sunday Papers Live, Sunday 29 May, 1pm at Cecil Sharp House in north London. I’ll be hosting this afternoon of talks, music and comedy – in fact, my brother Andy will be there providing the latter. Apparently you can eat a roast dinner while you lounge around watching. Sounds good. Tickets!
