Norwich Theatre Royal: The first 250 Years. This exciting book brings us the untold story of one of Britain’s oldest continually-running provincial theatres.

This history of Norwich’s wonderful Theatre Royal, encompassing the lives of so many who have devoted their professional careers to it, does a great service. Through the depth of its research it brings the past to life most meticulously. It is truly a labour of love, and I hope that as you read it you will be able to taste a flavour of how the lives of a great theatre and of a great city add richness to one another.

Nine tales of terror, tenderness and atrocity.

These beautifully observed stories take us from England’s fading seaside towns, through London’s bright and brittle media set, to darker, haunted places-where the characters we meet, must fight for existence in worlds beyond their control.

Tim Blackwell’s stories are like highly polished gems.They sparkle and entertain, but are never precious. From city streets to seaside towns, the tales he tells are witty, gritty and full of surprises.
