Michael Parkinson

My Sporting Life: Memories, Moments and Declarations

Venue 1

To mark the publication of his latest book, a collection of his best sport writings alongside new thoughts on the world of sport as he sees it, Sir Michael Parkinson is in conversation with his son and co-author Mike. Showing highlights from the Parkinson archive, this special Hay Festival event is a unique opportunity to get an intimate, entertaining and informative look at his remarkable journey from a pit village in Yorkshire, via rejection at the Yorkshire nets, earning a living watching and writing about sport to eventually finding himself at the top of those famous stairs as host of a show that for many defined their Saturday night.

Price: £14.00
