Absolutely thrilled to announce that our talk with Emma John has been rescheduled for Wednesday 8th November 2017 (7.45pm) at the The George Hotel in Norwich.
Emma first book – Following on – has recently been announced as the prestigious Wisden book of the year for 2017.
Emma’s talk will be unmissable for anyone who followed England through the dark, barren years of the 1990s and still has a soft spot for Michael Atherton, Alec Stewart or John Crawley!
