2 Mixing humour and poignancy with a masterful balance, writer, producer, performer and all round talent Henry Normal launches his new poetry collection ‘Raining Upwards’.

4 Hot on the heels of Eddie Izzard’s recent book tour of memoirs comes Matt Lucas, with his own heart-warming and tear-jerking tome ‘Little Me: My Life From A–Z’.
