Philip Collins and Shaun Usher

Baille Gifford Big Tent


Philip Collins (When They Go Low, We Go High), former speechwriter for Tony Blair, and author Shaun Usher (Speeches of Note, Letters of Note), join forces to analyse the great speeches of history from orators such as Kennedy, Obama and Churchill. Alongside readings from professional actors, they’ll look at speeches we know and admire, and shine a light on those often ignored. All are extraordinary.

Chaired by James Ashton
