About this Event
2020 is rough on all of us. Thank goodness for Miriam Margolyes.
The nation has fallen in love with this BAFTA Award-winning actress thanks to her recent documentaries, including Miriam’s Big Fat Adventure, Miriam’s Big American Adventure and various trips to the Real Marigold Hotel, which revealed her brilliant humour, frank opinions, huge warmth and indomitable spirit.
Qualities we need by the bucket load. As one critic remarked of her in the latest series, Almost Australian: “She issues big-hearted hugs and swears like a sailor.”
Empathetic, life-affirming and fuelled by plenty of chutzpah, she’s not afraid to bring unfiltered fun as a chat show favourite on the Graham Norton show. Her acting career includes Harry Potter, Call the Midwife, Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence and on stage, her acclaimed one-woman show, Dickens’ Women.
Daytime hosts Phil and Holly have had to apologise for Miriam’s unrepentant use of various naughty words. She’s doesn’t hesitate to share her robust opinions on injustices in the world, speaking up for those who need a voice, and she’s not afraid to point to the politicians who fail us. She speaks the truth as she sees it – something she has said is “our duty as human beings.”
We’re proud to present the marvellous Miriam Margolyes in this exclusive Zoom event.
As no computer screen can possibly contain her, this promises to be an evening that will electrify, entertain and enlighten.
Miriam will be interviewed by her good friend, Lucinda Hawksley – the biographer, author and lecturer – who is also Charles Dickens’ great, great, great granddaughter. This intimate conversation promises to explore Miriam’s career, her political views and activism, and her scholarly and lifelong passion for Charles Dickens.
