Please note that this event is now taking place on Saturday 14th September. If you have already booked places, we will be in touch shortly to confirm the change.

Reporting on the Trump White House is a daily cacophony. Four major stories can blow up and blow out before breakfast, and political weather systems are moving at warp speed. The one thing absent from the weather forecast is the tranquil eye of the storm.

Join the BBC’s North America Editor Jon Sopel as he takes us inside Trump’s West Wing and explores the impact this presidency has had on the most iconic of American institutions.

You are invited to step inside the Oval Office where Trump called for loyalty from FBI Director James Comey, and experience life as a reporter in the Briefing Room, where the tense relationship between the media and the President is played out. Guiding you through these rooms, Jon reveals the inner workings of the Trump White House and details the key moments and conversations that have unfolded within its walls.

Welcome to the White House.
