Compassion in the Community

In conversation with journalist Rachel Cooke

LIVE STREAMED: Saturday 10th October 2020, 7-8pm: £5


Dr Rachel Clarke and Nazir Afzal bring their professional experiences to this discussion on how our community need kindness and compassion more than ever in the face of COVID-19. Both Rachel and Nazir were recognised as key voices for the unheard and marginalised during the height of the pandemic.

Dr Rachel Clarke started her career as a journalist and documentary maker, before swapping bylines and word counts for a medical degree. She now specialises in palliative care, caring deeply about helping patients live the end of their lives as fully and richly as possible. Dear Life is Rachel's second memoir and is based on her work in a hospice. It explores love, loss, grief, dying and what really matters at the end of life.

Nazir Afzal OBE is the true face of British justice. In his 24-year career he has prosecuted some of the most high profile cases in the country and led nationally on several legal topics including violence against women & girls, child sexual abuse, and honour based violence, giving a voice to the voiceless. His memoir, The Prosecutor, was released on the same day his brother passed away from COVID-19. It is both a searing insight into the justice system and a powerful insight of one man's persuit of the truth.

This event is chaired by Rachel Cooke, the award-winning writer and columnist at the Observer as well as being the television critic at New Statesman.

This event was filmed at the Last Days of Summer Weekend in September 2020 with a live audience.

Tickets are per user and the event can be viewed from the live streaming time above until 31 October 2020.
