Sir Tim Waterstone in Ely

March 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In this charming and evocative memoir, Sir Tim Waterstone, founder of Waterstone’s and one of Britain’s most successful businessmen, recalls the childhood experiences that led him to become an entrepreneur and outlines the business philosophy that allowed Waterstone’s to dominate the bookselling business throughout the country.
Tim explores his formative years in a small town in rural England at the end of the Second World War, and the troubled relationship he had with his father, before moving on to the epiphany he had while studying at Cambridge, which set him on the road to Waterstone’s and gave birth to the creative strategy that made him a high street name.
Candid and moving, ‘The Face Pressed Against a Window’ charts the life of one of our most celebrated business leaders, and we are delighted that he can join us in Ely to share his story.
