‘There is no one on earth quite so wonderful as Miriam Margolyes’ Stephen Fry
Spend an evening in the company of one of Britain’s favourite (and naughtiest) national treasures, Miriam Margolyes, as she shares stories from her remarkable life.
BAFTA-winning actor, voice of everything from Monkey to the Cadbury’s Caramel Rabbit, creator of a myriad of unforgettable characters from Lady Whiteadder to Professor Sprout, and creator of hit solo show Dickens’ Women, Miriam is one of the most recognisable actresses working today. Now, at the age of 80, she has finally decided to tell her life story in her bestselling, award-winning memoir, This Much Is True.
In conversation for this exclusive event, Miriam will take you on an extraordinary adventure through a truly independent mind and life. Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair, what pranks led to Miriam being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had and how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John as a teenager. With a cast list stretching from Scorsese to Streisand, a cross-dressing Leonardo di Caprio to Isaiah Berlin, the evening promises to be jam-packed with jaw-dropping anecdotes and an abundance of uncanny impersonations.
Reliably outrageous and always entertaining, join Miriam for a riotous evening as full of life and surprises as the actress herself.
Bands A-D include a signed paperback copy of This Much Is True.
