An Evening with Gervase Phinn
Gervase has been touring theatres across the country for over 10 years now, and really is at his best and most exciting in front of a live audience.
With his keen ear for the absurd and sharp eye for the ludicrous An Evening with Gervase Phinn will have you on the edges of your seats, as Gervase shares his hilarious and sometimes poignant tales of life as a schools inspector in the Yorkshire Dales, with his shows receiving rave reviews.
Comedian, author, poet, broadcaster, lecturer, educational guru, after-dinner speaker and 'born raconteur' (The Guardian) – Gervase is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of five Dales books for Penguin.
Affectionately dubbed 'the James Herriot of Schools', Gervase has also written a wide range of academic books, children's poetry and fiction and is a columnist on The Countryman.
'Gervase Phinn is one of the most accomplished public speakers of any kind. A natural storyteller, he combines the timing of the professional comedian with palpable warmth and the ability to deliver a message that is more than just a series of jokes.” (The Times).
This is an allocated seated event which takes place in The Robert Bolt Theatre.
First half: 7.30pm
Second half: 8.35pm
