We're teaming up with Shelter to mark the housing and homelessness charity's fiftieth anniversary and to kick off their 'Gimme Shelter' season. A genuinely stellar line-up features PJ HARVEY reading from her collection 'The Hollow Of The Hand', and TRACEY THORN introducing us to 'Naked At The Albert Hall', a spellbinding memoir of singers and singing. Other guests include acclaimed comedian, novelist and general good egg, MARK WATSON, reading from his brilliant new book, 'The Place That Didn’t Exist', and one of our favourite writers and best of friends, JOE DUNTHORNE. Music comes from the dazzling singer-songwriter, LAURA J MARTIN. Hosted by the inimitable SALENA GODDEN.
