About the Event
Join us to celebrate the life and career of a man who has interviewed over 2000 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, this is a unique opportunity to get an intimate, entertaining and informative look at his remarkable journey from a pit village in Yorkshire to the top of those famous stairs, whilst reliving the best moments from a show that defined Saturday nights for many years.
There will be a book signing after this event.
