Followed by Q&A

These talks must be a nice little earner. Neil seems to have done quite a number over the past 12 months.

Agreed!

I’m not sure I’ll bother with this one

I guess it’s going to cover the same ground as the last talk and I think it’s another opportunity to shift a few more copies of his book

The audience Q&A is likely to be the most interesting and we may get a few more details about the new album

Well, there will be 'pre-signed bookplates' available to buy at the event, so the book will be a part of that. Exit through the gift shop folks!

If you’re a ‘friend of the RA’, ie a member, you can buy tickets to this now.
Heaven is possible,

Was all set to book a place yesterday, thinking that as a friend of the Royal Academy there might be a discount. But 20 quid for another talk in a similar vein to the last one and before the new album?.....nah.

I've bought a ticket. I'll let you know how it goes. Day out in London should be fun. Should be a good night, too.

The RA website. Yeah, I know it's annoying the tickets didn't go on sale until 10:15 (not 10:00), and then sold out.
