Sold Out Alan Johnson

Music was my First Love

If today’s politicians make you miserable, Alan Johnson may be the antidote. The former Labour Home Secretary has written a series of witty memoirs, and he’s regularly regaled Book Festival audiences with colourful tales of life beyond Westminster. In My Life is another hit, this time focusing on Johnson’s love of music – from Dylan to Donegan, Bowie to the Beatles. Hear how their tunes have shaped him as he talks to writer, social historian and music fan Daniel Gray.

We invite you to Pay What You Can for this event. You may choose to pay an amount between £0 and £25 for your ticket, taking into consideration what you can reasonably afford to spend.
