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.

Book places

Collecting your event book voucher

As our event book vouchers have a redeemable value, we do not post them out. They are available for collection from the bookshop at any point before the event (and there is often a slight incentive with this option), or alternatively they can be collected on the door of the event.

Group bookings

If you require more than 10 places, please contact the bookshop for a group booking so that we can arrange to seat you together.

How our event book vouchers work

The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event, which also guarantees admittance for one person. Event book vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.

Refunds and Exchanges

In order to maintain the great value of our event book vouchers, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
