Join Shropshire’s worst novelist, Christopher Bliss, for a one-off intimate evening of dipping, chipping and sipping, as he dips into his oeuvre of 2-page novels, chips away at life’s big questions, and sips hot Ribena live on stage.
A village-renowned novelist and son of two, Christopher is known for such literary classics as ‘A Murder And A Robbery At The Same Time On The Train From London To Shropshire’, and ‘I Spy With My Little Eye Something Beginning With Why Have You Been Sleeping With My Wife’.
Think fun light-hearted entertainment, think Garth Marenghi meets Philomena Cunk, think sitting in a room for an hour while a rural oddball chucks home-grown drivel down your ears, it’s that sort of thing.
As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
