Dog Days: A year with Olive & Mabel
Hexham Abbey: Spiegeltent
Saturday 11 June: 6.45pm
Tickets: £10, £8
Andrew Cotter takes an amusing and highly entertaining look at an extraordinary year with his loveable Labradors (yes they will be here).
In Dog Days, Andrew Cotter draws inspiration from the great Samuel Pepys; like him, he bears witness to the extraordinary everyday as the world tilts on its axis in our own unsettling era. And so, with Olive and Mabel at his side - actually, dawdling in the long grass or sleeping upside down - Andrew takes a clear-eyed, often hilarious walk through a year that encompasses all of life from the crushingly mundane to the decidedly odd.
Andrew will be interviewed by: Richard Moss BBC Political Editor NE & Cumbria
