Leeds Book Club is thrilled to announce the following prizes for our World Book Night extravaganza!
Waterstones have very kindly provided us with vouchers – perfect for book lovers and emerging readers alike. The Leeds branch is choka-full of enthusiastic staff members who will help you find the ideal treat! Say hi @WaterstoneLeeds
Our friends at the West Yorkshire Playhouse are providing us with tickets to see Sherlock Holmes – The Best Kept Secret – a new adventure for the redoubtable Holmes and his faithful Watson, written by Leeds playwrite Mark Catley.
As we’ve actually read some Sherlock mysteries across the book clubs (and developed a near unhealthy obsession with Benedict Cumberbatch in the process), this is the perfect mix of literature and theatre and LEEDS for us!
OK Comics – one of my must-visit haunts in Leeds – have also been following World Book Night with interest. However, Jared (@OKComics) and Ollie (@mysterypickles) aren’t convinced that World Book Night pick Judge Dredd: The Dark Judges is the comic that they would have picked to share and distribute on the 23rd. So each have picked a title and are providing us with copies as prizes! Huzzah for OK Comics!
Harrogate Theatre has also been in touch. As literary minded sorts, they thought that tickets to their upcoming show – The Count of Monte Cristo – would be an appropriate way of celebrating World Book Night!
You can find more details about the production on our Events page as well as free copies of the eBook behind the play HERE.
Each of our venues will also be provided a ‘bottle of something a bit nice’ for a lucky WBN attendee – so huge thanks also to @MedusaBar and @WhiteSwanLeeds. Not only brilliant and generous hosts for our book clubs; they really do go that extra mile to make us feel at home!!
Not that we need booze to feel at home of course.
Finally – though not a prize that anyone can take home with them on the night – I’d have gone totally scatty without Kirsty (@Gazpachodragon) – #WSwanLBC host on the 23rd and Quiz Maker extraordinaire. She has been an absolute gem throughout organising this and takes everything that I’ve thrown at her on board with a humour and grace that has been inspirational!
Three Cheers for our awesome #WBN gift givers and helper-outer!!!
Hope to see you at either White Swan Leeds or Medusa on the 23rd!
