Actor and adventurer Michael Palin is coming to Norwich later this month.
The former Monty Python star is coming to the Waterstones store, in Castle Street, at 1pm on Tuesday, November 20 to sign copies of his new book, Brazil.
Waterstones assistant manager, Ben Richardson, said: “He last visited us in 2004 for his Himalaya book. He was a really lovely chap, and the queues snaked halfway around Norwich.
“I am really looking forward to meeting him again, he is a real legend.”
- The book is a tie-in with Mr Palin’s latest BBC Television documentary, press play on the video above for more information about the series.
As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
