Special Announcement from Ampthill Writers 

An evening of readings and acoustic songs …. In preparation for the inaugural Ampthill Literary Festival, 2014

Have you ever wondered why work gets a bad press? Or why songs about hard toil and the nine-to-five make such a great soundtrack? Ampthill author Philip Whiteley presents readings, observations and a selection of songs on the theme of work, based on his award-winning publication Meet the New Boss. He will be joined by Peter Webster and Ross Fergusson, plus special guests, to play some classic songs, including: Between the Wars, Nine-to-Five, We Gotta Get out of This Place, and more.
