John Crace, A Farewell to Calm
Mary Nathan

This event was recorded at our Spring Festival in April

A Satirist’s Survival Guide to the New Normal

Amidst the turmoil, bluster and all too frequent U-turns in Westminster, there is at least one thing we can rely on: the much-needed injections of humour provided by John Crace, whose gloriously acerbic Guardian political sketches allow us to laugh at even the darkest of times.

Treat yourself to John’s uproarious take on the lates shenanigans in Westminster.

In conversation with writer and editor Mary Nathan.   

Venue: Online

Duration: 1hr

Tickets available soon.
