Last Wednesday,on January 19th, the trade launch for The Somnambulist was held at Wilton's Music Hall - the oldest hall in London, and one of the few still standing today - and what's more it is regularly open to the public, putting on some spectacular shows.

For Essie Fox, the Night of Magic and Mystery hosted by her publishers Orion Books was like a dream come true - with a visit to Wilton's two years ago providing the inspiration for her novel's opening scenes.

A tour of the wonderful theatre with its glorious brass barley twist pillars was followed by readings, food and wine, culminating in a magic show. Definitely a night to remember!
