Wednesday 2nd November, 7pm

The longest-serving presenter of BBC Radio 4’s flagship news and current affairs programme Today, Justin Webb has enjoyed a high-flying career since joining the BBC in 1984.


At The Eight Bells, he will share reminiscences from his childhood memoir, The Gift of a Radio, a tour de force of psychological insight and bleak humour. The book lays out the unlikely seeds of his success, a fraught and repressed childhood shaped by the hang-ups of his beloved mother and dysfunctional 1970s England.

Tickets £55 per guest

Ticket price includes a three course dinner.

Limited tickets available 


If you would like to sit together, please book together. Thank you!
