Jon Ronson – novelist, award-winning journalist and former keyboard player for the legendary Frank Sidebottom brings his one-man show to The Dukes in Lancaster on Monday night.

For three years in the late 1980s, Jon Ronson was literally a ‘key’ member of the Timperley superstar’s Oh Blimey Big Band.

They toured the United Kingdom, playing to sell-out crowds in small-to-medium-sized venues.

They rode high. And then it all went wrong.

On Monday from 7.30pm Jon Ronson’s Frank Story reveals the truth behind the new fictionalised film about Frank which he co-wrote and stars Michael Fassbender.

Part memoir, part movie diary, this is a tribute to outsider artists too strange to make it in the mainstream.

There’s also another opportunity to see the Frank film itself at 6pm on Monday, before Jon’s show.

Tickets £13, £1 concessions. Box Office: 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
