An Evening With Science Fiction Author Christopher Priest
Wednesday 14th September at 7:00pm

Christopher Priest is one of the UK's leading authors of literary science fiction, best known for his book The Prestige, later filmed with Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Hugh Jackman. His other acclaimed titles include The Affirmation, The Glamour and The Separation, carving out a reputation as one of the UK's most challenging and rewarding authors.

Joined by a supporting cast including David Bowie, Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson and Andy Serkis, this superb thriller garnered two Oscar nominations and strong reviews.
