Event description

Description

Come and hear three fantastic speakers in the heart of Notting Hill. Summer Speakers is a series of talks, hosted by St James Norlands Church, to engage and entertain our local community. Tickets £7.50. Wine available.

Talks start at 7.30pm and last approximately 1 hour.

6th June: Craig Brown - Satire in the age of Trump

  • Craig Brown is Britain's leading satirist. His frequently hilarious columns appear in Private Eye, The Times, The Telegraph and the Daily Mail. He has pilloried everyone from Jilly Cooper to Donald Trump.

13th June: Michael Cockerell - Politics, Personality and Power

  • Britain's finest political documentary-maker reflects on times when Britain was at its most divided and will show clips of his encounters with some of the country's most extraordinary and polarising political figures from Enoch Powell to Tony Blair, from Barbara Castle to Boris Johnson.

27th June: Alan Johnson - Growing up when Notting Hill was a slum

  • Alan Johnson, union leader, cabinet minister and would-be Mod rock star was an MP until this election. The former Home Secretary grew up in the Notting Hill area in the 1960s, when it was a place of slum landlords, racial tension and desperate poverty. How much has really changed?
