Writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie takes you on a nocturnal trip through Britain in search of fun, at the Carriageworks Theatre, on Friday 1 July. With his best-selling books as a guide, Stuart plots a route that takes in high art to low culture, family holidays to fell-walking, music, sport, politics, crown green bowling and zombie apocalypses…. always keeping in mind his motto… all things in moderation… including moderation!
Stuart Maconie is a radio presenter, writer, journalist and critic. Having presented shows on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3 and 4, he now co-hosts afternoon slot Radcliffe & Maconie and presents his own Sunday night programme, Freak Zone, on BBC 6 Music.
