Word Perfect with Susie Dent ONLINE

Thursday 8th October 2020, 7.30pm
Venue: Exclusive Online Event
Tickets: £14.99 to include a copy of 'Word Perfect'

Susie Dent has been presenting from Dictionary Corner on TV's 'Countdown' for 28 years, and is also a member of the team for the comedy spin-off '8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown'.

Her passion for words and language is contagious and in this new book she has compiled a word for every day of the year to entertain and intrigue us all.

Find out about the stories behind phrases such as 'turning a blind eye' (Nelson putting the telescope to his missing eye to ignore the order to stop fighting) and why 'May Day' became a distress call. Learn the background to words such as 'tartle' (forgetting someone’s name) or 'snaccident' (unintentionally eating a whole packet of biscuits).

While Susie was hoping to visit Woodbridge to launch this new book (her 16th!), the current situation has meant that is no longer possible.

So I'm thrilled that we will be able to talk to Susie online instead.

I will talk to Susie about her career in television, her love of language and some of her favourite words included in 'Word Perfect'. There will be the opportunity for questions from the audience, and a signed copy of the book will be available for all attendees.

Tickets are £15 and this includes access to the live online event and a copy of 'Word Perfect'. Tickets are now available online
