The event is part of North Day, a day of festival events exploring the concept of 'North' - Paul will discuss his latest book and will be joined on stage for a chaired panel discussion. The event is on Saturday the 28th of September from 15:00 - 17:00 at The Orangery. Tickets are £10 each but if you are our lucky winner they are on us! Find out more about the event.
Paul Morley grew up in Stockport, Cheshire, and has worked as a music journalist, pop svengali and broadcaster. He is the author of a number of books on music and has written for publications including the New Statesman, the Sunday Telegraph, NME, the Observer and the Guardian.
From Manchester to Liverpool, to Newcastle via Reddish, ‘The North’ gets to the heart of what life is like above the M25. Written in Paul Morley’s inimitable style, it is an extraordinary mixture of memoir and history, and offers a unique insight into how we, as a nation, classify the unclassifiable.
As funny as Alan Bennett’s ‘Untold Stories’, as poetic as Simon Armitage’s ‘All Points North’, and yet nothing like either, this is a memoir like no other.
