This seems to be tucked away in one of the back pockets of the BBC Writersroom site, so it may have escaped your notice…

On Wednesday 15 April 2009 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm at the Soho Theatre in London, Armando Iannucci will be talking about In The Loop, the new film semi-spin-off from The Thick Of It. No doubt, though, he’ll be asked (and hopefully answering) questions about other work from his resume.

It’s free to attend, though you need to get your name on the list, which you can do by e-mailing, with the subject line “Armando Iannucci Q&A.”

That’s about all you need to know, but if you want to be sure I’m not just making it all up (I might be hopped up on a dangerous combo of tea and chocolate), the official page about it is here.

I’m planning on attending, howsabout you?
