Bill on Radio 4 – Sunday’s Open Book

Posted by Bombyx Mori on May 7th, 2010

Bill will be on Sunday’s Open Book on Radio 4 at 4pm (repeated on Thursday 13 May at the same time) chatting about Somerset Maugham. We are informed that it will be the final (and most substantial) item in the programme, although we would, of course, encourage you to listen to the whole show.

It’ll also be available via the web and as part of the Books and Authors podcast. Don’t say we never tell you nothing (for a start, that would be well bad English).

Ashton Gate Stadium Date Changed

Posted by Helperworme on May 7th, 2010

Unprecedented demand leads to switch.

Bill has changed the date of his summer show at Ashton Gate Stadium, home of Bristol City Football Club, to Saturday June 19th due to requests from fans.

Bill has received numerous messages from people up and down the country unable to attend the West Country show in its original midweek slot.

But he has now found time in his busy schedule to rearrange the event so even more of his loyal fans can attend what will be the biggest show of the his career to date.

Bill says: “Looking forward to seeing the West Country massive. Saturday night – should be a rocking gig”.

Seats are still available priced £20-£30 and can be purchased online at, or; or by phoning the stadium hotline 0871 222 66 66 (option 1, and then option 2 listening out for “concert tickets”). Tickets can also be purchased in person at the stadium in advance.

Tickets bought for the original date of Tuesday June 15th are valid for the new date. Should any ticket-holder be unable to make the new date they should contact the ticket agency where the original purchase was made for a full refund.

NB Calls to the 0871 number cost 10p per minute plus network extras. Wheelchair/carer tickets should be purchased direct from the stadium.
