NIGEL OWENS - DON'T MISS OUT!
It is just three weeks until our special 'in conversation' event with Welsh rugby referee Nigel Owens MBE, and tickets are selling fast!
Nigel has been described as the best referee in international sport, and is also a television personality, comedian and the first openly gay rugby personality. His autobiography Half Time is warm, funny and painfully honest and Nigel speaks frankly about his struggle to accept himself for who he was, leading to attempted suicide, bulimia, and steroid addiction. Join us for an evening of storytelling and laughter as Nigel recounts many amusing incidents from rugby matches, foreign trips and his off-field career as an entertainer. Kindly supported by Auckland Grammar School and chaired by Belinda Henley. 7pm, Thursday 20 October. Tickets on sale via eventfinda
