71. The Oldie Literary Lunch with Austin Mitchell, Alan Johnson and Tessa Boase

The Oldie Literary Lunches have become a venerable institution on the London literary scene since they were first launched in 1996. Held monthly at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand, we also partner with regional literary festivals. This will be our first visit to Ilkley Literature Festival and we look forward to a three-course lunch in the Moorside Ballroom of the Craiglands Hotel, followed by three 10 minute talks. They will include: the former MP for Hull, Alan Johnson, who will talk about his new musical memoir; Austin Mitchell, another ex-MP, who will speak about Confessions of a Political Maverick; and Tessa Boase talking about her new book Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather.

Includes three course lunch Drinks 12–1pm. Lunch 1pm

Tickets are £55 each.
