Win tickets for high tea with Stuart Maconie

One of the funniest writers lands in Manchester at MOSI this Sunday – eat cake with him

Published on January 4th 2010.


Win tickets for high tea with Stuart Maconie

Stuart Maconie, co-host of the Radcliffe and Maconie Show on BBC Radio 2 and host of The Freak Zone on 6Music, will give a reading from his latest book, Adventures on the High Teas, and talk about the quirks and delights of his travels in pursuit of Middle England ... via Manchester.

Maconie will be appearing at MOSI (Museum of Science & Industry), Liverpool Road, Manchester, on Sunday 10 January at 3.00pm.

The best-selling travel writer, broadcaster and talking head, Stuart Maconie has journeyed around the UK collecting anecdotes, observations and divided opinion and will share them with the audience in his own inimitable style. He's a very funny man.

Steve Davies, Director of MOSI, said: “As the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station, MOSI is an apt host to Stuart Maconie’s verbal tour of the country, with more than a nod to the North.”

Confidential isn't sure about the links in our mate Steve's comment above but we do have four free tickets (including cream tea) to give away. Apply below before 4pm on Thursday 7 January to have a chance of winning.

Funnily enough Manchester Confidential's editor Jonathan Schofield appeared in Stuart Maconie's northern travelogue, the multiple best-selling and utterly hilarious Pies and Prejudice. In a section on Manchester's cutting edge opinion forming character Schofield was referred to as a 'radical historian' by Maconie. Schofield still doesn't know what that means but feels it was on the whole a compliment.

If you want to buy tickets, then the event starts at 3pm on Sunday 10 January. Doors open at 2.30pm. Ticket prices £8 in advance, including cream tea*, available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or call 0844 847 2261 (24 hours) or visit MOSI’s shop.
