We are thrilled to welcome the author and screenwriter David Nicholls to Durham.

David Nicholls’ books include Starter for TenOne Day and Us. For the screen adaptations include Great Expectations and Far from the Madding Crowd. Amongst many awards, he most recently won a BAFTA for his adaptation of Patrick Melrose.

Chaired by Claire Malcolm, New Writing North

At 8.15pm there will be a screening of Far from the Madding Crowd, as selected by David Nicholls.
