Adventure at Two Burgate: Jules Brown Book Launch & Gin Tasting

Renowned travel writer Jules Brown launches his new e-book with us.

Masters of gin Sloemotion company will be providing gin tasting throughout the night.

Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

Starts 7:00pm.

Some people set out on a journey of self-discovery and start by looking inwards to decipher who they really are and find that place in life they can call home, but not Jules Brown. This Pickering based adventurer has his eyes firmly set outwards. He has travelled the world, far and wide, writing as he goes, you’ve probably even unknowingly benefited from some of his wise travel advice if you’ve ever picked up a ‘Rough Guide’ travel book (I know we have on many occasions – thanks Jules).

So, Who Is Jules Brown?

For those of you unfamiliar with the name, Jules Brown has been a professional travel writer for over 30 years, he’s made his living literally writing the world. Born in exotic Ghana and raised in good old Yorkshire, Jules really did start exploring the world at a young age. Not many of us can say we took a solo trip around Europe at the age of 17, now can we?!

He’s a storyteller, an inspiration and a jolly nice human being to boot. Also, a consultant for ‘Best-of-UK’ travel website, his job is literally finding the coolest places to eat and drink, so we’re humbled and honoured to host him on the 3rd April as he introduces his new e-book to you here at Two Burgate (you lucky lot).

The Book

Already holding a respectable 5 star amazon review and called Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield).. Wait, stop, have we lost you? If like us you thought Takoradi was some form of modern martial arts all the kids are into these days, well… you’d be wrong (as were we). Takoradi is actually a city in Ghana, West Africa and more importantly the birth place of Jules Brown.

Anyway, where were we? Yes, Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield) is a heart-warming search for home and identity, with a quirky take on travel writing. Join Jules in his search for home and heart with this inspiring book.

You don’t care how good we say the book is though right? We might just be full of gin and enthusiasm. So, come down to Two Burgate on Wednesday 3rd April and make your own mind up, listen to the man himself reading several book extracts for you, while you casually sip your drinks pretending to be posh (don’t worry, we’ll be doing exactly the same).

The Launch:

Not only will Jules be sharing his new book with us, we’ll also have Sloemotion Gin in the house, providing a full evening of gin tasting. So come along, wet your appetite for adventure, whilst you wet your whistle with us.

We can’t guarantee tables for all of Pickering, so arrive early, get inspired, get tipsy, but most of all, enjoy the journey, even if it isn’t yours.
