We’re beyond happy to announce that IRVINE WELSH will join us; the razor-sharp Scot behind classics Trainspotting, Porno and Filth is bound to have a few poignant things to say, and we can’t wait to hear them. Straight outta the POP DUNGEON, we welcome back CHARLOTTE CHURCH in conversation, who takes a break from POTUS poking to share a few colourful thoughts on modern politics.
Cardiff-born writer and filmmaker IAIN SINCLAIR may be best known for his London-rooted work, but we’re thrilled that the Welsh icon is up for a chat in our Talking Shop. Then there’s BILLY BRAGG whose unmistakable folk-punk protest songs will set the foundation for a fascinating chinwag about music and politics that focus on his forthcoming book 'Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed The World'.
Elsewhere: NIKESH SHUKLA presents a very special panelized discussion based on last year’s Guardian Reader's Book of 2016 - The Good Immigrant. SHIRLEY COLLINS returns to Talking Shop in conversation with Jude Rogers. Plus Lynsey Hanley, Dawn Foster and Emma Jackson explore the roots and consequences of 10 YEARS OF THE UK HOUSING CRISES.
Of course, we’ve got your favourite Talking Shop regulars, too – Make sure you’re early to watch PETE BROWN match beers with the bands of Green Man 2017, our legendary POP QUIZ with Pete Paphides and Bob Stanley, and our ever-popular MOJO INTERVIEW, which this year features Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods plus no doubt a few expletives!
We’ll be nostalgically CELEBRATING FIFTEEN YEARS OF GREEN MAN with a panel of audience selected stories. Come reminisce over memories, life-changing events, mountain views and hangovers with us.

And come get lost with us while Will Ashon, author of the acclaimed journey into Epping Forest ‘Strange Labyrinth’, John Grindrod whose forthcoming book ‘Outskirts’ looks at the Green Belt and Travis Elborough author ‘The Park’ explore the art of getting lost in places that seem familiar in
