Dave will be interviewed at the event by the journalist/writer Stuart Maconie. After an audience Q&A, the evening will conclude with a book signing (copies of books by Dave and Stuart will be available on the night).

In his new book, Haslam documents encounters with inspiring characters including Tony Wilson, Nile Rodgers, Terry Hall, Neneh Cherry, Tracey Thorn, John Peel, Mark E Smith, Ian Brown, and John Lydon. Morrissey comes to tea; he meets writers including Raymond Carver and Jonathan Franzen; he discusses masturbation with Viv Albertine; he has a gun pulled on him at the Hacienda, a drug dealer threatens to slit his throat; and Sonic Youth sleep on his floor. It’s a masterful insider account of the Hacienda, the rise of Madchester and the birth of the rave era. And so much more…
