CELEBRATING OUR SPORTING OBSESSION

BUTCH WILKINS AND THE SUNDANCE KID

From Euro 2020, to the triumphant return of Wimbledon, to the 2021 Open Championship and the Tokyo Olympics, this summer has brought audiences together around TV sets across the globe to tune in. After a tumultous year these events have brought an injection of energy into our lives as we cheer and cry our way through all the highs and lows.

In celebration of our sporting obsession we join Nige Tassell on a nostalgic and thoroughly relatable journey in his memoir, Butch Wilkins and the Sundance Kid. Sweet, wise and witty, it is a hymn to televised sport in the 1980s – as well as to the decade itself – combining humour, insight and poignancy.
