Back in the Day with Melvyn Bragg

Join writer, broadcaster and host of Radio 4’s In Our Time, Melvyn Bragg, as he celebrates the publication of his first ever memoir.

Live on stage, Melvyn will share his elegiac, intimate account of growing up in up in the Cumbrian market town of Wigton, from his early childhood during the war to the moment he had to decide between staying on or spreading his wings.

This is the tale of a boy who lived in a pub and expected to leave school at fifteen yet won a scholarship to Oxford. Derailed by a severe breakdown when he was thirteen, Melvyn will recall how he developed a passion for reading and study - though that didn't stop him playing in a skiffle band or falling in love.

With the opportunity to ask your own searching questions, this event promises to be a poignant elegy to a vanished era, vividly capturing a community-spirited northern town and illuminating what made Melvyn the writer, broadcaster, and champion of the arts he is today.

'Back in the Day' by Melvyn Bragg can be purchased for an additional £10 (RRP £20) during the checkout process which will be available for collection on the night of the performance.
