Oooh! That looks great (I'm looking at this as potential writing inspiration :P ). Strange how none of the gents have said a word about it though... Anyway, I also hope there'll be a signing, because if there is I'll actually be able to make it!

Hmmm...that's what I thought, as they always usually have such an involvment in everything they do as 'The Gents', maybe they were just busy....still Reece has blogged recently and not mentioned it.

'Book of Precious Things' signing in London, 4th Sept

Post by Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Wed Jul 25, 2007 4:24 pm

Although its almost a couple of months before the event I thought advanced notice would be a good idea so anyone wanting to go has time to arrange travel, getting time from work, college etc... :wink:


The League of Gentlemen

Jeremy Dyson, Steve Pemberton, and Reece Shearsmith

The "League of Gentlemen"'s Book of Precious Things

WATERSTONES, LEADENHALL MARKET

Tuesday, 4 September 2007, 12:30PM

The League of Gentlemen team will be signing their new book, a collection of comedy sketches, films, songs and poems that inspire them.

Further details: 020 7220 7882

Waterstones, Leadenhall Market
1-3 Whittington Avenue
London

The nearest two tube stations to Waterstone's Leadenhall Market are Monument tube (5 minutes) or Bank (6 minutes). For railway stations, Fenchurch Street Railway Station (6 minutes) or Cannon Street Railway Station (8 minutes)

Also underneath this signing event announcement on Waterstones website is this:-

*Please note that events can occasionally be cancelled at short notice or their times or dates may alter; we therefore recommend that you check with the shop before travelling.

If you are unable to attend an event. we can often reserve signed copies. Please contact the host shop for details. Reserved copies cannot be guaranteed and may not always carry dedications.

All signings (unless otherwise stated) operate on a first come first served basis, so early arrival is often recommended*

**I think the reason Mark can't make is because 'All About My Mother' has its official opening on 4th September...**

Well spotted Deb! Blimey, the official site is useless!

Has anyone telephoned the number?

Most signings these days seem to have a weird wrist-band but this does sound like you just "turn up"
**Maybe Mark can't make it due to 'All About My Mother' being on at Old Vic by then...?**
Well exactly! But if there isn't a matinee that day, perhaps he can make it?

EDIT: It's a Tuesday so I would expect that's why. Shame about Mark doing his play because it would be so much nicer for Non-London folks if it were a weekend. Grr!
And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold
You want it! You can't get enough of Hilary Briss and his special stuff...

That's only about 5 minutes from my work. Still, in the middle of the day so I doubt I'll be able to nip out...

Am sorely tempted to come down for both of these, but don't know if I could afford the train fares (I don't do buses), and somewhere to stay :? . Will have a think on it. I could always eBay the contents of my house to raise funds! :lol:
