A fun and utterly unique event that’s part-storytelling, part-confessional and wholly entertaining!

Back at The Book Club for a regular Tuesday night residency, your affable host Alexis Strum brings you 'The Time I Almost', featuring stories from her career as an 'Almost Popstar' and beyond, accompanied by a select bunch of comedians and audience members telling you their life's best almost moments. Expect a little Schadenfreude, a lot of 'closure' and maybe even some happy tears! 

Alexis is the girl who wrote the book on failure (literally) with her laugh-out-loud memoir, 'The Time I Almost...', charting her abortive attempts to become a popstar, supermodel, movie star and international spy, so this event promises to be laughs-a-plenty! Plus, 20% of all profits from the event will go to Women’s Aid.
