Join us for the launch of this new publication by the bookshop’s Wivenbooks Press imprint.

In the songs and poems of his new book and CD, Adrian May takes a wry, left-wing look at the vexed questions of English identity, ranging from the comic to the poignant, where ‘Nobody hates the English as much as they hate themselves’.

This launch includes a performance by Adrian with the band Face Furniture and the Extensions. There is a licensed bar at the venue.


We are delighted to be hosting two Essex Book Festival events this year, and do hope you’ll join us – tickets are on sale at the bookshop
