Strictly Ann - An Evening with Ann Widdecombe

Sailing dangerously close to National Treasure status, one of the most outspoken politicians of our time embarks on her first ever national tour.

Entertaining, enlightening and as controversial as you would expect, Margaret Thatcher and Craig Revel Horwood collide as Ann lifts the lid on life in Westminster and shares behind-the-scenes gossip from some of the nation’s best-loved programmes, including Strictly Come Dancing, Have I Got News For You and Celebrity Big Brother.

From growing up as an orphan in a West London slum in the 1950s to becoming a postman before rising through the Labour Party ranks to hold several cabinet posts, including Home Secretary.

WHY? Alan tells his personal story with the help of some of the music that has soundtracked his life

Gyles Brandreth - Break a Leg!

They say all political careers end in tears.

In Brandreth's case it's tears of laughter as the actor, author, ex-MP, One Show reporter and QI, Have I Got News For You and Countdown star is back on tour with his new show celebrating all things theatrical.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), the BBC Radio 4 Just a Minute regular delivers dazzling wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy and hilarious name-dropping.

WHY? ‘A master raconteur’ ★★★★★ The Telegraph

‘Total joy’ ★★★★★ Scotsman

Suitable for ages 11+ years.
