Rankin Signing Tour Updated
02 Jul 2003

Roberts forthcomming signing tour has now been finalised, and there are some slight changes from those publicised in the Mercury.

The tour will start off with a special Sproutlore event and gig.

We are meeting in Brentford on Saturday the 2nd of August, for a picnic and visit to the 'Flying Swan' .

Meeting time 12.30, at the Memorial Library, Acre Rd., Two minutes from Brentford BR station.

Following the picnic and beer, we will be all heading down to Chiswick for the book signing, where copies will be available for purchase. Later on we have a full evening of events lined up at The Hole In the Wall Pub 12 Sutton Lane North from about six o'clock till late. This will include a live performance from Robert Rankin and his band 'THE ROCK GODS' a special once off bookplate designed by Robert, raffles, food, a talk about the bookand a bit of laugh and good company.

Members are welcome to bring guests and there is a 5 cover charge per person for this event. There will not be books available at the event itself, so members are encouraged to either get their copy online here at teh Sproutlore site, or at least in the Chiswick branch of Waterstones.
