Everyone’s favourite dictionary extraordinaire Susie Dent arrives at Sale’s Waterside Theatre this July, hosting a celebration of the weird and wonderful origins of the English language.

Delving into the history of the words we use every day, Susie will recount the unlikely tales that lie hidden beneath.

Along with shedding light on lexical question marks like the silent ‘H’ in ghost, audiences can expect to hear some of Susie’s funniest moments from her time spent on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and other anecdotes from her life.

Lauded as a “national treasury from a national treasure” by Richard Osman, The Secret Lives of Words is the perfect night out for any keen literature buffs.
