Susie Dent: The Secret Lives of Words

Thursday 20th Sep 2018, Corn Exchange Auditorium

Full Price £19.50

Take a journey into the curious, unexpected and downright surreal origins of the words we use every day with Countdown’s Susie Dent.

Susie will retell the adventures that lie hidden within such words as lasagne (involving a chamber pot) and bugbear (a terrorising monster), and explain the mysterious disappearance of kempt, gormful and ruly (and yes, you can be gruntled).

Sharing a selection of the funniest moments from her 25 years on Countdown, Susie will also welcome any questions in her very own ‘word surgery’.

Duration: 2hrs (including interval)
