About the event

Our Cream Tea and Meet The Author Event with local author Chris Gill, about his book The Butcher Boys. 


Chris Gill: 

"My mum, aunties and uncles were born and bred in Grassington and, for many years, my Grandad and two of my uncles ran a shop virtually next door to The Stripey Badger on the High Street."

About The Butcher Boys

Our need for identity can jeopardise what we hold most dear. 

In a Yorkshire Dales village in the nineteen-seventies, best friends Michael, a boy with a strong sense of tradition and family loyalty, and Jack, a boy drawn to new horizons, are there for each other through traumatic childhoods. But as they become men, set against the backdrop of Thatcher's Britain and the fall of the Iron Curtain, their struggles for identity and the intense rivalry between their butchers' shops threaten to destroy them.
