On Wednesday, Gervase Phinn takes to the stage to share his hilarious tales of life as a schools inspector in the Yorkshire Dales. The best selling author, radio and TV personality is best known for his four autobiographical novels and with his keen ear for the absurd and sharp eye for the ludicrous, Gervase Phinn has delighted audiences all over the UK with stories of his experiences as a school inspector.

The start of the Marina summer film season gets underway next Friday as blockbuster Indiana Jones And the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (12A) takes centre stage.
