For ten years, Alex James was the bass player of Blur - one of the most successful British bands of all time. Learn how he left the private jets and screaming fans behind for the rural setting of his 200-acre farm in the Cotswolds, and an unlikely career as a gourmet cheesemaker.
Along the way there have been stints learning to conduct on BBC TV's Maestro, writing singles for artists such as Sophie Ellis-Bexter, regular columns in the Independent, Observer and Spectator and his autobiography, Bit of a Blur.
Alex will bring samples of his cider and cheese and will also sign copies of his book.
