Jenni Murray
Afternoon Tea at the University Arms Hotel

Dame Jenni Murray is one of the country’s best-loved and most inspiring broadcasters, her interviews on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour with both the famous and the unknown lodging themselves in listeners’ memories. She has also written memorably about breaking free from her conventional upbringing, and about the trials of the menopause. Her book, A History of the World in 21 Women, ranges through history and across the globe to make a personal selection of the women who’ve inspired her, from Joan of Arc and Catherine the Great to Toni Morrison and Madonna. Join her for a chance to be similarly inspired over delicious tea and cakes.
