Felix Francis in Conversation
Monday 16th October
Warwick Hall, Burford
Horse racing is the second biggest spectator sport in the UK after football and Felix Francis knows his audience better than most. The son of the legendary author and racer Dick Francis, Felix co-wrote thrillers with his father in his latter years and continued to publish them under his own name after Dick’s death in 2010, selling nearly 1m copies as a solo writer to date.
No Reserve is a blistering new high-stakes thriller set in the glamorous but cutthroat world of British racehorse sales. Theo Jennings is a young auctioneer at the thoroughbred sales ring in Newmarket. The October yearling sales are where the big money exchanges hands in frenzied auctions: millions of Guineas paid for horses that are as yet unnamed, untested, and have never taken a step on the track. It's the greatest gamble in all of horseracing, and one that can end in ruin.
We are delighted to welcome Felix to Burford to talk about horse-racing, his life and No Reserve.
Tickets are £5 and on sale now Each £5 ticket is redeemable against a copy of No Reserve which Felix will be signing at the event.
