Controversial author and theorist Will Self is confirmed as the next guest in Dave Haslam’s Close Up interview series. This strange concept sees Haslam, a man best known, perhaps, as a Hacienda DJ, chatting to important cultural and literature figures on stage. But to all intents and purposes, it’s a winner with previous guests that include Jonathan Franzen, Jeremy Deller and Jarvis Cocker. To mark the publication of Self’s latest novel Umbrella, you can book tickets for what promises to be a lively and controversial session now.

Sun 14 Oct, Royal Exchange Theatre, St Ann’s Square, M2 7DH. Tel: 0161 833 9833, 7.30pm, £12/£8,
