"It is true, the spoken word enlightens both the spirit and the soul. Indeed, the HENDRICK’S Master Distiller can often be heard talking at length to her ‘two little sweeties’ – the delightful and peculiarly small copper pot stills from which the most unusual gin flows."

"The new Michael Palin." - Tatler magazine

The English eccentric is under threat. In our increasingly homogenised society, these celebrated parts of our national identity are anomalies that may soon no longer fit. Or so it seems. Henry Hemming will describe his thought-provoking quest to discover
the most eccentric English person alive today, unearthing a surprisingly large array of playfully outspoken, original and inspiring characters.

Henry Hemming is the author of In Search of the English Eccentric (2008) and Misadventure in the Middle East (2007). He has been described in The Spectator as “a fresh new voice, idealistic, engaging and human”.
