It’s Happy Days in Helmsley as Gervase Phinn hosts a book signing

Gervase Phinn to sign copies of his new book at Claridges on 15th December

Bestselling author and acclaimed raconteur Gervase Phinn will be hosting a book signing at Claridges in Helmsley on Friday 15th December.

Gervase will be in the Church Street store from 11.30am until 1.00pm, signing copies of his new book ‘Happy Days’, which launched last month.

The book features a series of amusing anecdotes and moving memories about special days we all remember, from a first visit from the tooth fairy and cosy family Christmases to big birthdays and sunny summer picnics.

An award-winning public speaker, Gervase has had an interesting life, working as a teacher, school inspector and education advisor. He has written over 50 books and tours the country with his sell-out one man shows.

Ken Claridge, who owns Claridges, said: “Gervase is a fantastic Yorkshire personality and we’re delighted to be welcoming him to Helmsley in the run up to Christmas. Happy Days would make an ideal Christmas present – made even more special if it’s a signed copy. There will be a short talk from Gervase, plus festive nibbles so why not make a day of it and get all your Christmas shopping in our lovely market town.”

Claridges has been based in Helmsley for more than 50 years, and as well as selling toys, greeting cards and stationery, it specialises in books written about the local area, or from local authors.
