Neil Gaiman with special guests FourPlay
Sydney Writers'Festival Event
We're just 10 days away from our very exciting event with Neil Gaiman and FourPlay at City Recital Hall Angel Place.
This is a rare opportunity to experience one of the world's greatest storytellers and see the famed Australian string quartet, as they take to the stage together.
Gaiman is a multi-award winning novelist who writes across genres and has been credited as one of the creators of modern comics. The night will begin with Neil reading from his latest novel for adults, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, followed by music and stories with FourPlay. Neil will be taking questions from the audience.
As a special offer on the night, each ticket holder will receive an exclusive printed preview of Neil's forthcoming novel.
