3:00pm - 4:00pm: In Conversation with Sir Paul Smith

Sir Paul Smith has been at the top of the British fashion scene for the best part of five decades. Known for an approach to menswear that is often described as “British classics with a twist” — but he’d rather call "no-bullshit clothing" — there won’t be many Esquire readers out there who haven’t worn his designs. He’s also a hugely successful businessman of course, who turned a one-man brand into a global mega-empire. Eccentric, engaging and inspiring — and still at the top of his game at 71 — join him in conversation with Esquire’s Editor-in-Chief Alex Bilmes.

5:30pm - 6:30pm: Hype, Hoodies and H@ndles: How Men Shop In 2017

2017 has been the year of the male shopper. Traditionally considered less interested and engaged than women, the value of the UK menswear market is expected to increase to £16 billion by 2021. This growth is partly down to how retailers, marketers and journalists are engaging with men in increasingly new and innovative ways. From the drop phenomenon, to the rise of streetwear and internet shopping, we speak to industry experts including Damien Paul, Head of menswear at Matches Fashion, Atip Wananuruks of Highsnobiety, Ben Banks of Four Marketing and Terry Betts of Thread.

6:00pm - 7:00pm: Classic Cocktails with Tony Conigliaro

6:30pm - 7:30pm: An Audience with Sir Geoff Hurst

Still the only man to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final, Sir Geoff Hurst MBE joins us to reflect on an incredible career that saw him clock up more than 400 appearances for West Ham, 49 England caps and 228 career goals before later becoming a successful businessman and coach. Intelligent, funny and a great storyteller, expect a memorable and anecdote-heavy evening with a genuine sporting icon. Followed by Q&A.

7:00pm - 8:00pm: Martin Miller’s Gin Masterclass

In the first of two identical sessions, join the resident expert from Martin Miller’s Gin for a lively, informative and hands-on session with this brilliant and versatile spirit. Including an A-Z of gin, the chance to make your own gin cocktails and advice on how to pick the perfect garnish pairing to create your ultimate G&T.

7:00pm - 8:00pm: In Conversation With Robert Webb: How Not To Be A Boy

You probably know Robert Webb as the Webb half of Mitchell & Webb in the Sony award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Sound and the Bafta award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Look, and as permanent man-boy Jeremy in the incredible Peep Show. But away from all that, he's also been a male for his whole life which means that like all boys, he’s been exposed to those timeless, unwritten and often pointless rules of what it is to be a man: a world of fighting, posturing, drinking beer and the insistence that he stop crying. His funny, honest and moving book How Not To Be A Boy has earned brilliant reviews and expect more of the same in this talk, as Robert looks back at his own life while considering the expectations boys and men have thrown at them along the way and how it shapes every one of us.

7:30pm - 9:00pm: An Intimate Dinner with Chris Galvin: A Career In Three Plates

With a career spanning 30 years at some of the finest restaurants on both sides of the Atlantic and now with a portfolio of his own in London and beyond, Chris Galvin’s knowledge, dedication and passion for food are legendary in the industry. Join him at the dinner table for a seasonal menu of three classic Galvin dishes which remain essential to his philosophy. Don’t miss this chance to enjoy memorable food and conversation with this brilliant British chef.

7:30pm - 8:30pm: Drops, Duds and Digital: 12 Months That Changed The Face Of Menswear

8:00pm - 9:00pm: Behind The Mirror: Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones on TV’s Greatest Sci-Fi Anthology

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker and showrunner Annabel Jones take us behind the scenes of their multi-BAFTA and Emmy-winning anthology series. The session will explore contemporary themes of techno paranoia and the inspiration behind their sharp, suspenseful and often uncomfortably prophetic televisual phenomenon. Now returning to Netflix for its fourth season. Followed by a Q+A.

8:15pm - 9:15pm: Martin Miller’s Gin Masterclass

In the second of two identical sessions, join the resident expert from Martin Miller’s Gin for a lively, informative and hands-on session with this brilliant and versatile spirit. Including an A-Z of gin, the chance to make your own gin cocktails and advice on how to pick the perfect garnish pairing to create your ultimate G&T.

9:15pm-10:15pm : Mark Cavendish: What I've Learned

With a cycling CV that includes an astonishing 30 stage wins at the Tour de France, world championship wins on track and road, an Olympic silver medal, and even a BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, Mark Cavendish is known all over the world as a true great of the sport. As cycling’s popularity has soared over the last decade, “Cav” has been at the heart of it all. Always honest, opinionated and entertaining, don’t miss this chance to hear it all from the man himself. Followed by Q&A.
