Adult life is full of mysteries. What should you check before renting a flat? How do you ask for a pay rise? Does anything really need to be dry cleaned? And why does everyone else seem to know these things except you? (They don’t, but this book will help.)

What to expect?

'Being an Adult' is a practical and entertaining guide to the life skills you weren't taught at school, from when to ask for a discount or send a condolence card, to how to save money, and what you need to know before your first day at work.

Join the book's brilliant authors, Lucy Tobin and Kat Poole , for an evening of insightful conversation with Shortlist Entertainment editor, Chris Mandle.

If you’ve ever wondered when you’re going to become a ‘real’ grown-up, this book is gonna guide you there, with top tips from 20- and 30-somethings, and 'proper' adults including a plumber, a doctor, and a personal finance expert clearing a few things up.

Ticket includes drinks on arrival. Tickets are £10.00, or take advantage of their exclusive offer and pick up a ticket to the event, plus a copy of 'Being an Adult' (RRP £12.99) for £18. Copies of the book also be on sale on the night at full price.
