Playing Under the Piano – Book Tour

In Conversation with Hugh Bonneville

26th July 2022

I’ve written a book called Playing Under the Piano, and during October and November I’ll be skipping around the country talking about it.

Maybe you’ll come along to one of the events.
Maybe you’ll buy the book.
Maybe you’d rather eat your own young.
The choice, dear reader, is yours.
