A small number of tickets have been returned and are available to book via the link.

Matt Lucas finally got the University of Bristol degree he deserved after 24 years in 2017 when he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Letters and high-fived the chancellor. He studied Theatre, Film and Television in Bristol in 1993 but, preferring stand up, he left the university to join Shooting Stars and has stayed in film and television ever since. ‘I was…generally useless at university life. I had few friends and rarely left my room, unless it was to go and cook something in the kitchen’, he said. While students got down to serious life and academic work, Lucas ‘walked up and down nearby Whiteladies Road with a cough’. He reveals the stories behind his time in Bristol and his subsequent career in film and television in his new autobiography Little Me: My Life From A-Z. Covering Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, Bridesmaids, Les Miserables, Alice In Wonderland and Shooting Stars, Lucas tells the hilarious, honest and heart-warming story of his life.

This event is free, but booking is essential. Booking opens midday Tue 5 September 2017. Pre-order a copy of Little Me at a special discount price of £14 (RRP £20). Select ticket + book option and show your ticket on the night to purchase at the special price from Waterstones. Please note this offer is only available to those who pre-order.
