Miriam Margolyes OBE, is the nation’s favourite (and naughtiest) treasure. Now, at the age of 80, she has finally decided to tell her life story and it’s well worth the wait. Join Miriam ‘in conversation with Anna Wallace’ at the Royal Hall in Harrogate on 17th October at 3pm. Miriam will be talking about her new memoir This Much is True as well as taking part in an audience Q&A. Tickets are on sale now.
Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair; what pranks led to Miriam being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had; how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John as a teenager; and what she did when Warren Beatty asked ‘Do you fuck?’. This wonderful memoir takes you on an extraordinary adventure through a truly independent mind and life. With a cast list stretching from Scorsese to Streisand, a cross-dressing Leonardo di Caprio to Isaiah Berlin, This Much Is True is as clever and self-critical, as warm and honest, as full of life and surprises, as its inimitable author.
Join us for an afternoon of laughter and fun.
