Storyhouse in Chester has announced a double bill of fascinating chat this autumn, when two household names appear at the venue on the same day!
Sir Michael Parkinson and Stacey Dooley can both be seen at Storyhouse on Sunday 14th October – Stacey in the afternoon, Sir Michael in the evening.
The venue will host ‘An Afternoon with Stacey Dooley’ at 2.30pm and there will be a post event book signing.
Stacey Dooley is known for taking part in the BBC series ‘Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts’ which saw her live and work alongside Indian factory workers making clothes for the UK High Street.
This sparked her series of hugely popular investigations, establishing her as one of BBC Three’s most celebrated presenters.
Through the course of her documentary making, Stacey has covered a wide range of topics – from sex trafficking in Cambodia, to Yazidi women fighting back in Syria.
At the core of her reporting are incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances.
In her first book, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back, Stacey draws on her encounters with these brave and wonderful women, using their experiences as a vehicle to explore issues at the centre of female experience.
At 7.30pm, on the same day, ‘An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson’ will be staged, celebrating the life and career of the man who has interviewed more than 2,000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries.
In conversation with his son Mike, and showing highlights from the Parkinson archive, An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson is a unique opportunity to experience an intimate, entertaining and informative look at his remarkable journey.
From a pit village in Yorkshire to the top of those famous stairs, audiences will be able to relive the best moments from a show that for many defined their Saturday nights.
Tickets are now on sale for both shows.
