Anton Du Beke - the King of Ballroom, Strictly Come Dancing royalty, and household name - joins us in Bath for what will inevitably be an entertaining night.
In 2018, Anton realised his boyhood ambition and published the first in a series of bestselling novels set in the 1930s world of the exclusive Mayfair hotel, The Buckingham. He joins us to discuss his new book, The Ballroom Blitz.
September 1940.
