NOVELIST Patrick Gale will be reading from his latest novels, A Perfectly Good Man and Pictures at an Exhibition and discussing his work in an evening event in Hereford Cathedral next Thursday, October 11.

Patrick has a musical and cathedral background and these elements are often found in his writings. Now living in Cornwall, he has been, until recently, chairman of the St Endellion Music Festival which brings together musicians from all over the world on the glorious north Cornwall coast.

Tickets are £10, to include wine and canapés. Proceeds will be donated to Endelienta, a Cornish charity promoting the arts and spirituality. Tickets are available from the cathedral shop on 01432 374210 or email shop@
