Box Office Information

Imagine a Britain of no motorways, a countryside free from traffic noise, a time when outside the major cities there was no such thing as light pollution… and the only sounds of the night might be the owl’s hoot.

Midlands journalist, author and musician John Phillpott remembers those days clearly… so much so that they’re all recorded in his new book, Beef Cubes and Burdock: Memories of a 1950s Country Childhood, published by Austin Macauley.

He describes a time when farm labourers lived in tied cottages now occupied by young professionals… the days when there was a village shop, pub, off licence, post office and school… sadly, now all gone.

John will be on hand to sign copies of his book between 11am and 2pm on Saturday, December 15, at Henry Sandon Hall, Severn Street, Worcester.

A limited number of books will be on sale.
