Show and Tell for Grown-ups

When

It was fun when you were seven, and it’s still fun now. Did you have your childhood pet taxidermied? Do you treasure the cigarette butt some famous singer flicked into the crowd after the gig of a lifetime? It could be something weird, or it may be something valuable, rare or personally significant. It might be a text message, a piece of furniture, a childhood toy or a mobile phone video.

The stuff we keep says something about ourselves, and Show and Tell for Grown-ups is a place to share those stories. Host Tony Wilson invites his visiting hoarders to each reveal a thought-provoking or memory-stirring curiosity – then, the floor is open to you. Whip out your own novel objects and keepsakes … and give us all the low-down.

Bring your friends. Bring your family. Bring your taxidermy pelican collection.
