Wednesday 22nd June is a red letter day for fans of the BBC's hugely popular quiz show Pointless, when its two hosts, Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman are scheduled to make a brief stop at the Hungerford Bookshop.

The likeable and humorous duo will be signing copies of their book, The A-Z of Pointless, between 1.30 and 2.30pm. A spin-off from the hit show, their book is certain to be a best-seller. Now in its 12th series, Pointless has proved such an enduring ratings winner that there are now regular celebrity episodes where famous faces get to pit their wits against each other and search for that elusive pointless answer. This is a non-ticketed event but Hungerford Bookshop would be grateful if you could let them know if you are coming.Please call 01488 683480.
