Shelf Life with Griff Rhys Jones

Comedian, writer, actor and presenter Griff Rhys Jones comes to The Story Museum to share his in books.


The Story Museum is proud to present a brand new series of evening events featuring a host of favourite household names, exploring the books and stories that have stayed with them throughout their lives.

For many of us, the books that remain on our bookshelf often have their own stories to tell about the role they have played in our lives. This treasured collection often reflects the many parts to us, including our upbringing, our passions and our guilty pleasures. In this unique series of events, Nicolette Jones (Sunday Times children’s literary editor) discovers the books that sit on the shelves of some Britain’s best-loved and celebrated personalities.

For the first in the series, explore the bookshelf of comedian, writer, actor and presenter Griff Rhys Jones. Discover the books he loves, the books he would recommend and the books that have changed his life.

Shelf Life with Griff Rhys Jones takes place on the 31st August at 18:30. Tickets are £10/£8 and can be bought at or by calling the ticket office on 01865 305305. The event is suitable for ages 14+.

The next shelf life event features journalist and broadcaster John Sergeant and will take place on 3rd November. Find out more:
