Christmas Eve At Old College
Author Lucy Brazier reads a festive excerpt from the first in the PorterGirl series –
PorterGirl : First Lady Of The Keys
‘Tis the season for festive storytelling, so please welcome Old College’s very own Head Porter – British actor Paul Butterworth – reading to us a Christmas tale I have written especially for the occasion.
Paul has appeared in films such as The Full Monty and Frank, and is a stalwart of British TV – performing in soap operas, The Bill, All Creatures Great & Small, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, Holby City, Mysteries Of The Real Sherlock Holmes and many, many more.
On Santa’s naughty list this year? Treat yourself to a copy of PorterGirl : First Lady Of The Keys and make your self at home in Old College – where being good never gets you anywhere.
