Politics on the Edge
Join co-presenter of the hit podcast The Rest is Politics, Rory Stewart – diplomat, explorer, cabinet minister and writer - for an evening of no-holds barred discussion on crisis, politics and the world order.
Following sold-out 2023 events, Rory will be taking to the stage once more to reflect on how, over the course of a decade, he went from being a political outsider to standing in for the prime minister – before being sacked from a Conservative Party that he had come to barely recognise.
Tackling ministerial briefs on flood response and prison violence, engaging with conflict and poverty abroad as a foreign minister, and Brexit as a Cabinet minister, Rory learned first-hand how profoundly hollow and inadequate our democracy and government had become.
In conversation, Rory will engage with populism, Brexit and global conflict and delve even deeper into the instant number 1 Sunday Times bestseller, Politics On The Edge.
With a chance to ask your own questions to the man himself, don’t miss the chance to hear Rory’s account of the challenges, absurdities and realities of political life.
