Alan Partridge will return to his spiritual home of Norwich for a special event this weekend. 

Steve Coogan will be in character as Partridge on Saturday, November 11 at 11.30am for a book signing at Waterstones in Castle Street.

The event was originally due to take place in October, but it was rescheduled due to "a demanding rehearsal schedule for his next film". 

The tactless TV and radio presenter will be meeting fans and signing copies of his new book Big Beacon.

In this inspirational new memoir, Alan tells two stunning stories of triumph over mild adversity: somehow managing to rebuild both his TV career and an abandoned lighthouse in Kent.

It is a ticket-only event, with no opportunity to meet Alan without one, and they have all sold out.

The queue will be formed on a first-come, first-served basis.

There will be no posed photographs or selfies permitted during the signing due to time constraints.

However, staff will be on hand to take your camera or phone to get a photo of you with Alan while he signs your book.
