Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A from David Baddiel via Zoom

Friday December 4th 2020, 7:15pm GMT


Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to distract, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. And so while you can’t come to us, instead we will come to you, bringing a taste of Arvon into your home one night a week. Every week an Arvon tutor will join us as a guest, to read from their own work and answer your questions live and in person online.

This Live Guest Reading is with David Baddiel on Friday 4 December at 7:15 pm BST. David Baddiel is a comedian, author, screenwriter and television presenter. From performing the UK’s first ever arena comedy show to a crowd of over 12,000 in 1992 at Wembley Arena, to creating and presenting Fantasy Football and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned, to co-writing the seminal football anthem Three Lions, David Baddiel has cemented his place as a national treasure. This year, he received great critical acclaim for his BBC2 documentary Confronting Holocaust Denial, has recently released Future Friend, the latest in a series of beloved children’s books, and is planning to continue touring his latest sold-out stand-up show Trolls: Not The Dolls in 2021.

The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.

We are more committed than ever to helping writers find inspiration, and to make space for their own creativity, no matter the setting. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).

Cost: £5.00


Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.


"Thanks for an excellent session last night. It worked very well on Zoom, especially with the Q&A using the chat function."


"What a brilliant reading. It was intimate and moving and very listener friendly. I loved it and will be back for more."
