In early September this year Tim embarks on an “In Conversation” mini-tour of England, talking about his first non-fiction book: “You Don’t Have To Have A Dream (Advice for the Incrementally Ambitious)

Tim: “Hello my English friends: I am genuinely stoked to announce this lovely little Book Tour in early September. It’ll just be me and a smart, charming facilitator/interviewer chatting about the ideas in You Don’t Have To Have A Dream, and answering some of your questions. Can’t wait!”

In conversation with special guest interviewers*, Tim will share his inimitable thoughts and advice on life, art, success, kindness, love and thriving in a meaningless universe. Drawing from his legendary university commencement addresses, Tim’s rallying cry for creativity, critical thinking, and compassion in our daily lives will touch the science-loving reality-romantic in all of us.

*Special Guest Interviewers: Helen Lewis in Brighton, Eva Wiseman in London. Manchester to be announced.

Tim: “Although I’m a bit nervous to be sitting on a stage without a piano to sugar the pill of my opinions with, I’m really excited to dig deeper into some of the ideas I explore in this book. And, knowing the calibre of my interlocutors and my audiences, I’m sure the chat will push out beyond just those!”

Thanks Shell, all booked and ordered book also.

Shell on 12th of July 2024

Hi Emma,
There will only be these three dates.

Shell on 12th of July 2024

Hi Kim,
Yes, it will be available globally and there’s a timezone converter on the booking page here: LONDON, Cadogan Hall.
I’ve asked about the second part of your question and will edit this comment if I get a definitive answer for you.
UPDATE: Yes, you will also be sent a recording which will be available to watch for 2 weeks after the event.

Hi Emma Conway,
I’m sorry there were no wheelchair places left.
Book via the LONDON, Cadogan Hall link. Once you click through you get the ticket options including the Livestream.

Emma Conway on 12th of July 2024

How do I book the livestream? Unfortunately Manchester had no wheelchair spaces left 😟

Emma on 11th of July 2024

Is there likely to be another London date added?!

Kim on 10th of July 2024

Hi, Just wondering if the livestream of London would be available to be watched in Australia if we purchased it. And also- does it need to be watched ‘live’ or would it be available for a period of time. Thanks

Shell on 9th of July 2024

Hi Caroline,
Yes, I’m told that the books purchased with the livestream tickets will be signed.

Louise on 9th of July 2024

Best news I’ve had all year! Literally cannot wait for this. Thank you Tim for bringing your brain, wit and incomparably funny smarts back to our little island….we’ve missed them!

Caroline Dutton on 9th of July 2024

Hello, I am unable to make the London date so will be watching via the live stream (thank you for making it available online!!).

If I add the book to my order, will this be signed before being despatched or just a standard issue?

Many thanks
