Melvyn Bragg: Back In The Day
In conversation with Stefan Stern
Sunday 25th September, 2-3pm
Robert Graves Tent
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 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.
