Melvyn Bragg in Ely

Friday 28th May 2010

  • Venue Ely Cathedral, CB7 4DL
  • Doors open 1pm
  • Start time 8pm

A broadcaster and novelist who combines intelligence with clarity and enthusiasm, Melvyn Bragg has probably done as much to encourage interest in the arts and sciences as anyone in Britain over the last few decades. For this special Cathedral appearance he recounts highlights from his career in both radio and television as represented by two thoroughly entertaining new books. The South Bank Show: Final Cut, surveys over thirty years of the most successful arts programme ever screened, whilst In Our Time collects highlights from the outstanding BBC Radio 4 series devoted to the history of ideas. An evening not to be missed!
