A night of glamour and big ideas featuring Jeremy Paxman, Joanna Lumley, Rachel Johnson, Selina O’Grady, Katherine Rundell and Hannah MacInnes.
Join a veritable Who’s Who of British media and culture in this gathering at The Tabernacle.
From Jeremy Paxman’s reflections on the world in 2019 to Rachel Johnson’s life and career at the heart of British politics, Joanna Lumley’s acting and activism to Katherine Rundell’s reflections on the unexpected wit and wisdom of children’s literature, and with an abridged history of religious intolerance from broadcaster Selina O’Grady to remind us of the value of pluralism and empathy in our increasingly polarised age, this charitable evening of curated short talks and conversations will delight and enlighten in equal measure.
How To Academy is funding all costs for this event as a charitable contribution to the Meanwhile Gardens Community Association. All ticket income will be donated to the project. In the heart of an inner-city neighbourhood, the Gardens are used by people from all walks of life to plant, garden, play and embrace the many benefits that outdoor green space can provide to the mental and physical health of young and old, rich and poor alike.

This event is held with the generous support of The Tabernacle.
