AN EVENING WITH ADAM HENSON
Tickets £5 on sale now
Adam Henson, farmer and television presenter, will be joining us here in the shop on Wednesday 15th June at 7pm to talk about his new memoir, Like Farmer, Like Son.
Adam is most well known for his work on the BBC series Countryfile, and his newest work explores his life as a farmer, and the decisions and people that led him to where he is today. For the first time, he details the history of his family, and the events that took the Henson’s from a life of acting on stage and in film, all the way to the rolling hills of Gloucestershire. As well as talking about his life, Adam will be answering questions and signing books after the event.
