Join us for a wonderful evening of fiction exploring community, loneliness, friendship.
A Sunday Times bestseller, The Lido is about the heart of a community, loneliness and friendship. Brockwell Lido is under threat of closure from property developers. Rosemary, 86, has recently lost her husband of 65 years, with whom she used to swim in the lido every day. She has begun a campaign to save the place that holds so many memories for her.
With the warmth of David Nicholls and the charm and humour of Nick Hornby, this brilliant debut explores one man’s attempts to let go of the past and start his life afresh. All Andrew wants is to be normal. He has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that's what he's told people. The truth is, his life isn't exactly as people think and his little white lie is about to catch up with him.
