Book seven of Brentford Trilogy celebrated by convention
Robert Rankin fans to visit venue of popular novels
A literary event to rival Dublin's Bloomsday will hit Brentford during the first weekend of August.
Friday sees the launch of Knees Up Mother Earth in Stripes bar at the football ground. Robert Rankin will be there, with music (and drinking) into the night. On Saturday the Watermans Arts Centre becomes host to a series of talks and discussions based upon the various aspects of The Brentford Trilogy - from 'The Mythology of the Brentford Area' through to 'The Science of the Brentford Books', along with a signing of Knees Up Mother Earth in the evening. Sunday sees a treasure hunt, a picnic...and another trip to a local pub.
Much more information on the Brentcon weekend and Robert Rankin are available on the excellent Sproutlore website.
