In his latest book A Short Book About Painting Andrew Marr, one of our greatest cultural commentators, wrestles with some of the fundamental questions about painting and creativity. Following a serious stroke in 2013 that left him partially paralysed, Andrew’s  struggles with the physical rigours of oil-painting led him to investigate the whole process: inspiration, creativity, taste, beauty and form. Using historical examples of techniques from classical artists to the present day, as well as his own works of art to assert his point, Marr discusses the fascinating creative process. Those of you who have heard Andrew speak before will know that he brings wit, humility and razor-sharp insight to whatever subject he chooses. This promises to be a most stimulating and entertaining evening.

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.
