South London's mellow beats trio, Morcheeba, join the big league with a one-off show in the grand confines of the Royal Albert Hall on 9 November. It promises to be a lively homecoming show for the band after a huge year which has seen them tour the world and achieve both commercial success and critical acclaim for their magnificent Big Calm album. Book now and avoid disappointment.
Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, SW7 (0171-589 8212) pounds 10.50-pounds 13.50, 9 Nov
When Hanif Kureishi (right) published his hiss-and-tell novel Intimacy, full of thinly veiled personal bitcheries about his own marital break- up, he unleashed a very public storm of indignant protests from his entire family. Was the novelist's main problem too much fact or too much fantasy? Blake Morrison attempts to draw Kureishi out from behind the parapet in tonight's discussion about the dangers of confessional writing. Definitively the last piece of dirty underwear to come out of this particular family laundry basket
