An evening with the former Prime Minister

In his only live book event this year David Cameron discusses the new paperback version of his autobiography For the Record , a candid look at his life and times in politics, the changing nature of power and the role of leadership at a time of profound global change.

Initially the head of the UK's first coalition government in 70 years, in 2015 David Cameron led the Conservative Party to their first outright election victory in 23 years. His time as Prime Minister was marked by a series of tumultuous events. From the Arab Spring, the rise of ISIS and the conflicts in Libya, Iraq and Syria, to events closer to home including the Olympic Games and the Scottish referendum, the book sheds light on the seminal moments of his premiership. It also details the events leading up to the EU referendum, the complexities of the renegotiation, the campaign itself, and what he thinks of it all now.

Searingly honest about the key players throughout his time in politics, he is also frank about the decisions he made and what he got wrong.

David will be in conversation with political journalist and Times columnist Daniel Finklestein, Daniel's new book Everything in Moderation, a collection of his writing from 20 years of journalism, is also out now.

A signed copy of For the Record (RRP: £10.99) is included in the ticket price.
