Join us for an afternoon of tea, cake and chat with Tim Bentinck, better known to many as the voice of David Archer.

In Being David Archer, Tim recounts his enormously varied life with wry, self-deprecating humour. A successful actor in TV, film and theatre, a voice specialist working in every vocal medium, but in his lifetime he’s also been an HGV truck driver, a US tour guide, a computer programmer and website designer, an inventor with UK and US patents, farm worker, house renovator and he sat as a crossbencher in the House of Lords for three years.

With five million loyal Archers listeners, Tim takes the reader behind the scenes of the longest running drama series in the world, a British institution with a theme tune that Billy Connolly wants to be the National Anthem. Unlike many acting memoirs, this isn’t a succession of thespian tales of freezing digs, forgotten lines and name dropping. This is an articulate, funny and thoughtful account of how to survive an insecure life.
