Information:

2010-2020 left the country stripped bare, the fabric of civilisation itself worn thin by extreme and needless austerity. Things people take for granted turn out to have all but vanished. Things most prized have often been lost.

In this intimate and exclusive online event followed by a live Q&A, Polly Toynbee will be talking about her latest book - and how the people she interviewed across all walks of life fared in this decade. She will be looking ahead to how the Coronavirus crisis may change Britain's future priorities, with the warning: don't let austerity happen again.

Date: 30th Sept
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Zoom
Tickets: Released soon
