MONTY Python star and television globetrotter Michael Palin will be visiting Corbridge’s Forum Books later this month to sign copies of his new book Erebus: The Story of a Ship .

Palin’s novel unravels the mystery behind the HMS Erebus , a bomb vessel which set off from Wales in 1826, but disappeared from trace until 2014, when the vessel was discovered at the bottom of the Canadian Arctic.

The book signing will take place on Tuesday, September 25 between 11.50am and 2.30pm at Forum Books in The Chapel, Corbridge.
