The Fairy Visions of Richard Dadd


(with no football questions)
with Russell Taylor at the Century Club - Soho W1

Doors open at 6:30 pm, Talk commences at 7:00 pm

The FIFA Men’s World Cup will soon be upon us: a four-week frenzy of football. But what if you have no interest in the beautiful game? There is an answer: come along to Russell Taylor’s World Cup Quiz (with NO football questions).

This quiz is unusual in two ways. Firstly, because it is a World Cup Quiz which firmly eschews any mention of football; and, secondly, because you will be given the answers in advance. How is this possible? There’s only one way to find out. Buy yourself a ticket and come along.

And if you do like football, why not take a break from the pre-tournament hype and spend a couple of hours kicking a few fun facts around? You know it’s only a matter of time before you’re glued to your TV watching Tunisia v Iran.

Tickets £10 including a free drink and a chance to win a selection of fabulous prizes, please click here to buy.

In 2007 a stage adaptation of Alex, starring Robert Bathurst as the titular character, was produced at the Arts Theatre in the West End and later went on a world tour. In 2010 Alex hosted his own drive time show on Classic FM.

Russell is also a journalist and author, who has written humorous books on subjects ranging from Russia to marathon running. In 2002 he was appointed MBE for services to the newspaper industry.
