Waterman To Spill The Beans At Dinner

Coventry-born pop impresario Pete Waterman will be lifting the lid on his soaraway career in the music industry at an event in the city next month.

The man who launched the pop careers of Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Steps heads the panel of speakers at the next Writers at the Hall event

He will be talking about his sensational new autobiography, I Wish I Was Me at St Mary's Hall on Wednesday, 15 November.

His career has now spanned nearly four decades and right from the word go he developed a reputation as someone capable of introducing new sounds to a wide audience.

His controversial new book reveals the cut-throat world of the music business and looks back at his rise from Coventry railway worker to multi-millionaire record producer.

He said:

"There's a lot about Coventry in the book and I'm told that in many ways it's the most interesting part.

I'm looking forward to coming back to my home city and taking about it.

This is the fourth in a series of Writers at the Hall events, launched last year by Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions to highlight St Mary's Hall and celebrate Coventry's literary heritage.

Previous panellists have included Lord Roy Hattersley, award-winning novelist Linda Grant and Sue Townsend, creator of Adrian Mole.

Two more writers are being lined up for the November event. Their names will be announced shortly.

Organiser Peter Walters, from Coventry and Warwickshire Promotions, said:

"Our last Writers at the Hall event was a sell-out and we expect a lot of interest again this time.

It will be great to see Pete Waterman talking about his life and work in his home city and we will have a strong line-up to go with him. I would urge people to get their tickets early."

The evening includes a three-course dinner and free wine reception, as well as a book signing session.

Tickets are 20 a head and are available from Coventry's Tourist Information Centre in Bayley Lane on 024 7622 7264.
