Event details

Rock Bottom

Bryony Gordon is a respected journalist, a number-one bestselling author and an award-winning mental health campaigner. She is also an alcoholic.

In her brand-new book, 'Glorious Rock Bottom', Bryony opens up about a toxic twenty-year relationship with alcohol and drugs and explains exactly why hitting rock bottom – for her, a traumatic event and the abrupt realisation that she was putting herself in danger, time and again – saved her life.

Known for her trademark honesty, Bryony will discuss the darkest and most terrifying moments of her addiction, but also the chink of light that appears as the hard work begins: rehab; AA meetings; endless, tedious, painful self-reflection. She’ll share her roller-coaster ride through self-acceptance, friendship, love and hope, exploring how these universal qualities are not just key to her own journey, but also absolute necessities for all of us navigating our lowest moments, whether they be mental, physical or emotional.

Join Bryony as she shines a light on the deep connection between addiction and mental health issues in this shocking, dark, funny and uplifting evening, leaving you feeling empowered to confront, and rise up from, your own glorious rock bottom.
