Margaret Parkin shares her many travel mistakes, misfortunes and mishaps in a light-hearted rendition of storytelling, poems and even the odd song. Come and find out about her 'hotel bedroom with no bed', how she avoids strange people on trains and why she really prefers holidays in retrospect (a lovely town!).

Read what others have said: "My jaw is aching from laughing so much! Fantastic night – well done! You could take this talk anywhere – it’s great! Funny without being embarassing or crude The hour flew by – super!"

Please note that I prefer to only travel within a 20 mile radius of Selby, North Yorkshire. More than that I really can't be trusted to get there in one piece!
