FALMOUTH Bookseller is delighted to be welcoming one of the nation's favourite poets to the town to promote her new book Up in the Attic.

Pam Ayres will be performing at The Poly on Saturday, November 30 and tickets will be available directly from the box office.

Up in the Attic is the brand-new collection of verse from the Pam, who lives in the Cotswolds.

With the same magic that has enchanted her fans for more than four decades, Pam’s new collection is by turns side-splittingly funny, at others so reflective and profound that audiences are moved to tears.

From the horror of playing host in The Dinner Party and complaints about pub tableware in Don’t Put My Dinner on the Slate!, to the poignant Up in the Attic and the sadness of wartime Down The Line, this new collection will tickle and move readers in equal measure.

Pam has been a writer, broadcaster, and entertainer for over 40 years.

She is the author of several best-selling poetry books, including The Works, Surgically Enhanced, You Made Me Late Again!, and The Last Hedgehog.

Her autobiography, The Necessary Aptitude, was a best seller when it was published in 2011. On radio she is a regular on Just A Minute, six series of her own Ayres On The Air, and has appeared twice on the legendary Desert Island Discs.

Pam, an enthusiastic gardener, performs her solo stage show throughout the UK.
