Party time!

Hi everyone,

I do hope you'll join me for the online launch of It's All In The Mind on Saturday the 18th of April.

As it's a virtual launch, it's possible to imagine it taking place anywhere so I've chosen the Saloon Bar of the Churdley Arms in Churdley Bay as the location! Churdley Bay was the fictional seaside town Larry dreamt up as the setting for Vacant Lot, the proposed sitcom he wrote for Tony Hancock.

Some of the Vacant Lot actors will be reading short extracts from the book; I'll be sharing some previously unseen pictures with you; and I'm planning various competitions and giveaways. I'm hoping there'll be a few surprises too.

I'll be manning the bar* from 10ish until 5:30ish (UK time) so feel free to drop by whenever the mood takes you!

Stay safe,

Julie x

*It's an unusual bar in that you'll need to bring your own drink with you!

I'm hoping for a 'lock-in,' in the Chudley Arms, with the Vacant Lot crowd... ;)
