In 1995, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his home. The hilarious book he wrote about that journey, 'Notes from a Small Island', became one of the most loved books of recent decades, and was voted in a BBC poll as the book that best represents Britain.

Once again, he will guide us through all that's best and worst about Britain today - while doing that incredibly rare thing of making us laugh out loud in public
