About the Event

The presenter of BBC Radio 2’s Drivetime show shares her funny and heartwarming coming of age memoir of growing up in 1980s Lancashire, Until the Cows Come Home: A Lancashire Childhood. The often moving tale of life spent between her father’s cattle farm and the pub she lived above with her mother may not be what you’d expect from the original ladette and one of radio’s most-loved personalities. She talks to journalist Sophie Heawood.
