This Much Is True

In conversation with Samira Ahmed

Baillie Gifford Tent


‘There is no one on earth quite so wonderful as Miriam Margolyes.’ Stephen Fry

Join Miriam Margolyes as she tells her life story and it’s well worth the wait.

BAFTA-winning actor, voice of everything from Monkey to the Cadbury’s Caramel Rabbit, creator of a myriad of unforgettable characters from Lady Whiteadder to Professor Sprout, Miriam Margolyes OBE, is the nation’s favourite (and naughtiest) treasures. Clever, self-critical and always brutally honest, this event with Miriam promises to recollect and share anecdotes from a remarkable life, walking the tightrope between telling all and not hurting anyone. Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair; what pranks led to Miriam being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had; how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John as a teenager; and what she did when Warren Beatty asked a very intimate question.

A copy of This Much Is True is included per pair of tickets (£20)
