Kenny Everett’s hilarious autobiography, The Custard Stops at Hatfield is being re-released by G2 (in partnership with Lennard Associates) as a Retro Classic to tie-in with the 25th anniversary of his death at the age of 50 in April 1995. The £12.99 paperback takes you back on the journey of his life and career flavoured throughout with his wacky humour and personality.
Superstar deejays Chris Evans and Steve Wright have all cited Kenny as a huge influence – even the Goons’ creator Spike Milligan called him a genius. Kenny’s madcap style has become a blueprint for modern day radio shows with music, jingles, jokes and sound effects all part of the mix. He seamlessly moved into television in the 1970s where characters such as Cupid Stunt and Sid Snot became national treasures.
” Love Kenny Everett! How exciting! ” … Georgina Pursch, General Manager, PBShop

The Rugby World Cup dominated 2019 and this 24th edition of the Wooden Spoon Rugby World Yearbook is the story of the build-up to the World Cup and a full report of the tournament from Japan’s opening match against Russia to South Africa’s dominant performance against England in the final. The highlights are remembered in the words of some of the leading rugby journalists with pictures from the sport’s top photographers – Uruguay beating Fiji, Wales’s win over Australia, Japan delighting the home fans with wins over Ireland and Scotland and of course, England’s sensational semi-final win against the All Blacks. South Africa’s success, the performance of their team and the leadership of their captain Siya Kolisi are now written into the history books but RWC 2019 will also be remembered for the way in which the Japanese nation took rugby to its heart and gave both players and supporters the time of their life during six fantastic weeks of competition. Wooden Spoon Rugby World Yearbook 2020 is a colourful record of a memorable year of rugby that has been enjoyed by fans not only in Japan but in clubs, bars and sitting rooms around the world.
Contributors include Mick Cleary, Chris Foy, Sara Orchard, Chris Hewett, Chris Jones, Chris Thau, Hugh Godwin, David Stewart, Peter O’Reilly, Paul Bolton, Raechelle Inman, Neale Harvey, Alan Lorimer, Ruaidhri O’Connor and Terry Cooper… plus a RWC 2019 World XV selected by Ian Robertson and Sir Ian McGeechan. Priced at £20, the 160pp fund-raising yearbook is exclusively available through G2 on Monday December 2.
