Irvine Welsh Talk At Nottingham Broadway Cinema

Finally published for the first time after nearly two decades, Skagboys, the long-awaited prequel to 20th Century cult classic Trainspotting, is coming out in April and you can hear a talk by its legendary author Irvine Welsh at Nottingham Broadway Cinema on Thursday April 19th.

The event, which is in association with Nottingham Waterstones, begins at 6.30pm and promises to explore Irvine Welsh's amazing body of work as well as further revealing the backstory of Renton, Spud, Tommy, Sick Boy and Begbie through the 1980s.

Skagboys is the first half of the original manuscript for Trainspotting and, opening in the early eighties, reveals how it all went so wrong for the boys. Charting their journey from likely lads to young men addicted to heroin, the novel explores a time of drugs, poverty, AIDS, political strife, a lot of laughs and a little love during a decade which changed Britain forever.

Tickets for the event cost £5 (£3 with a Waterstones loyalty card) and are available from Broadway Cinema box office on 0115 9526600
