This Is Going To Hurt – An Evening with Adam Kay

Wed 24 Apr–Thu 25 Apr

This Is Going to Hurt is the hilarious, at times horrifying, and occasionally heart-breaking diary of a former junior doctor turned comedian.

After working 97 hour weeks, making life or death decisions in a hospital, Adam decided to hang up his stethoscope and share his collection of scribbled diaries. In recounting what he went through, Kay opens our eyes to life on a hospital ward in his bestselling medical memoir.

Adam’s book, was an instant Sunday Times number one bestseller and is being turned into an 8-part BBC series.

It has spent over four months at number one in the charts, and over seven months in the top ten, achieved number one bestseller status internationally and has won numerous awards. Join him for an evening discussing the book in more depth, followed by a Q&A.
