Barns host evening with Jupitus

A north Suffolk arts venue is celebrating a coup after renowned comedian and broadcaster Phill Jupitus agreed to spend an evening at Wingfield Barns.

The television personality, who is a regular on Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI, will be appearing at the barns to talk about his new book, Good Morning Nantwich, and the English love affair with breakfast radio.

The event, one of a series of regular literary evenings at the venue, will take place on Friday, January 14, at 6.30pm.

It comes after officials used online social networking to land the booking.

Lesley Jackson, general manager of Wingfield Barns, said: 'We are very excited that Phill is coming to Wingfield.
