We are delighted to present an evening with one of pop’s most successful managers, Simon Napier-Bell.

As manager of The Yardbirds, T Rex, Marc Bolan, Japan and Wham!, songwriter of Dusty Spingfield’s ‘You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me’, Simon Napier-Bell’s career spans a large part of the history of British pop.


As an author, he wrote one of the most lauded books ever written about post-war British pop music, ‘Black Vinyl, White Powder’, and in his latest offering, Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay – The dodgy business of popular music’, he tackles the whole history of the music industry, right from the beginning whilst squeezing in as many memorable anecdotes as possible.

At this very special event, Simon Napier-Bell will read from his latest book, talk about his life in the industry and take questions. The audience can expect to be regaled with tales of experience and rock-n-roll gossip of the highest order, from one of its legendary insiders.

Supper is provided by Teacup Kitchen.

Copies of ‘Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay – The dodgy business of popular music’, will be available to buy on the night and Simon will be on hand to sign any copies.
