David Sedaris presents his show at Northampton as part of a UK tour.

He could be heard on the hugely popular BBC Radio 4 series Meet David Sedaris and has seen millions of copies of his books sell across the world.

He has also had three sell-out runs in London, two sell-out Edinburgh Fringe Festival stints and a sell-out UK 2014 tour.

The show covers a period in his life in which for two consecutive Christmases in the early 1990s, he was a Christmas elf at Santaland in the famous New York department store Macy’s. These are the extracts from his diaries at the time and this story was given a rare outing on Radio Four.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets for the show cost £26.

These can be booked by calling the box office on 0160 624811 or visit

Doors for the show will be open at 6pm.

There will be a book signing both before and after the event.
