Our launch events are now being held online, via Zoom, so do bring your own wine and comfy chair events. There is a small registration fee for each one of £2, which is refunded if you cancel your place before the event begins — it simply helps us administer the online space. In return we'll give all attendees a discount code for the same amount off the books being launched.

Rock God Complex

Join Tracey Iceton for the launch of her latest book, the explosive Rock God Complex: the Mickey Hunter Story — an exposé of the extraordinary career of rock giants, Crown & Kingdom. Tracey will be joined for this special event by the Alex Fawcett Band, who will be performing C&K covers. (The band are appearing through the assistance of Darlington musicians' collective, Tracks, and a grant from Darlington for Culture — our thanks to them both!)
