Back in the Day: A Memoir

Sunday 12 June, 12 noon-1pm

Legendary writer, broadcaster and champion of the arts joins us for a look back at the upbringing that shaped him.

Melvyn will share his experiences of growing up in a Cumbrian market town from his early childhood during the war, to the moment he had to decide between staying on or spreading his wings. This event promises to be a poignant elegy to a vanished era and an illuminating look at how Melvyn became the man he is today.

‘Vivid and surprisingly tender’ The Times

‘Very impressive’ Financial Times

Chaired by Stefan Stern.

This event is sponsored by Robert Holmes Estate Agents.
