An Evening with... William Fotheringham

  • The Dynamo 200-204 Putney Bridge Road London, England, SW15 2NA United Kingdom (map)

The Guardian's William Fotheringham joins us at The Dynamo, Putney, to introduce a rare screening of 'Sunday in Hell', the classic 1976 documentary on Paris-Roubaix, cycling's toughest one-day race. 

William's latest book is 'Sunday in Hell: Behind the Lens of the Greatest Cycling Film of All Time'. Danish director Jorgen Leth's revolutionary film-making techniques capture the unique atmosphere of the race, as riders led by Eddy Merckx take on the gruelling, cobble-strewn course. William will tell us the inside story of the film and the race, and there will be a Q&A after the screening.

William Fotheringham has covered professional cycling for over 30 years and is a former editor of both Cycle Sport and procycling magazines. His many acclaimed books include 'Put Me Back on My Bike: In Search of Tom Simpson' and 'Merckx: Half-Man, Half-Bike'. William also worked with Bradley Wiggins on his autobiography, 'My Time'. 

Our Paris-Roubaix evening is an appetiser for this year's edition of the race, which takes place Sunday 14 April. 

We have a strictly limited number of tickets available for this special evening, so do please book early to ensure entry. Ticket-holders will be able to purchase the book at a £5 discount on the night.
