Note: this event has been postponed till 27 October.

Five times a year, the Idler magazine brings together a collection of writers, speakers and musicians for an evening of fun and feasting held at the Union Club in Soho, and hosted by editor Tom Hodgkinson and Idler Academy director Victoria Hull.

For our third dinner of 2020, we welcome comedian, writer, actor and podcaster Adam Buxton. Adam will be giving a talk based on his new memoir Ramble Book, which takes in his burgeoning love of pop culture as a teenager, his feelings on childhood and parenthood, coming to terms with the death of his father and much more besides.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase and there will be a signing session after dinner.

Due to anticipated high demand, tickets are limited to a maximum of four per order.
