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

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
