Melvyn Bragg

6:30pm - 7:30pm - Friday 7 June

Derby Theatre, DE1 2NF

Broadcaster, author and parliamentarian, Melvyn Bragg (Lord Bragg of Wigton) has been at the forefront of arts, culture and academic discussion for nearly 60 years. Starting his career as a BBC trainee, he has worked on many ground-breaking programmes, most prominently as editor and presenter of The South Bank Show and for BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time and Start the Week. His skills as a communicator have undoubtedly made the arts more accessible and less elitist.

His writing has included an array of award-winning fiction and non-fiction. He will be talking about his latest novel, Love Without End: a re-imagining of the legendary tale of Heloise and Abelard, uniting today and the Middle Ages in a thought-provoking novel and breathing fresh life into one of history's most remarkable and enduring love stories.
