We are delighted to welcome Alan Johnson to our opening event. Alan Johnson has held many senior ministerial posts in Parliament including Health Secretary, Education Secretary, Home Secretary and Shadow Chancellor.
His memoirs, beginning with This Boy, tell the story of his extraordinary journey from the slums of West London to the corridors of power with honesty, humour and a totallack of self-pity. The third volume, The Long and Winding Road, describes his time in government from 1997 to 2010.
Alan will be in conversation with Philip Webster, who was Political Editor of The Times until 2016. This is is an evening not to be missed.
