He will headline the Park stage on Saturday night.

Robert Webb – one half of BAFTA-winning Mitchell & Webb and also of the acclaimed Peep Show will be coming to the Bowling Green to discuss ‘How Not To Be a Boy’. His hilarious and heartbreaking ‘part-memoir, part call-to-arms’, in which he scrutinises the Rules for Being a Man and considers ‘the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life’.

Also announced are Insecure Men aka Saul Adamczewski and Ben Romans-Hopcraft of Fat White Family and Childhood respectively.
