Irvine Welsh

Sunday 3 April
2.30pm, £10 (£5 conc)
Age guidance: 16+ Diamond Jubilee Lecture Theatre, The Business School, University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, HD1 3DH

One of the most influential novelists of his generation, Irvine Welsh kicks off his UK tour with a special HLF post-festival event on 3 April.

The author of 10 novels, Welsh came to prominence with his debut Trainspotting (1993), which was successfully adapted for stage and screen. A film adaptation of Filth was released in 2013 and Porno (sequel to Trainspotting) will start filming this year, with the original cast and director Danny Boyle.

At this not-to-be-missed In Conversation event, Welsh will be talking to Nick Ahad about his brand new novel The Blade Artist, which sees the dark past of Trainspotting character, Begbie, catch up with his reinvented present-day self.

We will be promoting this event from next week, so this is your chance to book your ticket early:
Our Diary of Events page has more info on other authors appearing at the festival.

You can also read our latest blog here on the topical issue of whether authors should be paid for festival appearances (we believe they should!).

Keep checking on our website and social media sites for further information on all events (full brochure due out at the end of January).

And there are still some tickets left for Levison Wood at the Town Hall but they are selling fast!
