SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10 (10am - 4pm)


Mark O’Connell will be signing copies of his new book Catching Bullets: Memoirs of a Bond Fan. Prelude by Barbara Broccoli, Foreword by Mark Gatiss and Afterword by Maud Adams.

From the offbeat vantage point of a movie mad teenager whose grandfather was chauffeur to legendary 007 producer Cubby Broccoli, Catching Bullets – Memoirs of a Bond Fan is a love-letter to James Bond, Duran Duran title songs and bolting down your tea quick enough to watch Roger Moore falling out of a plane without a parachute.

When Jimmy O'Connell took a job as chauffeur for 007 producers Eon Productions, it would not just be Cubby Broccoli, Roger Moore and Sean Connery he would drive to James Bond. His grandson Mark swiftly hitches a ride on a humorous journey of filmic discovery where Bond movies fire like bespoke bullets at a Reagan-era Catholic childhood marked with divorce, a closet-gay adolescence sound-tracked by John Barry and an adult life as a comedy writer still inspired by that Broccoli movie magic.

A special retrospective tribute celebrating the very beautiful and much loved Caroline Munro, the Queen of Fantasy! Telling the stories and talking about her long career. From being a top model and singer to acting in films and her forthcoming book! Caroline Munro will be interviewed by Thomas Bowington and the retrospect is illustrated will still images and many clips from her films.
