BAFTA-winning actor, voice of everything from Monkey to the Cadbury’s Caramel Rabbit, creator of a myriad of unforgettable characters from Lady Whiteadder to Professor Sprout, Miriam is one of the most recognisable actresses working today. Now, at the age of 80, she has finally decided to tell her life story in her long-awaited memoir, 'This Much Is True'.
In conversation with Fi Glover for this exclusive event, Miriam will take you on an extraordinary adventure through a truly independent mind and life. Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair, what pranks led to Miriam being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had and how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John as a teenager. With a cast list stretching from Scorsese to Streisand, a cross-dressing Leonardo di Caprio to Isaiah Berlin, the evening promises to be jam-packed with jaw-dropping anecdotes.
Reliably outrageous and always entertaining, join Miriam for a riotous evening as full of life and surprises as the actress herself.
Over 16s only. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
Presented by Fane
