She won the George Orwell prize for political journalism and has appeared several times on Question Time and other political programmes. She is also a well-known commentator on various issues from immigration, feminism to Brexit.

Exotic England

‘The English may be duplicitous but they are remarkable too. The English unbutton their tight coats and release their audacious intrepid selves and venture out to unexplored territories” says Yasmin Alibhai-Brown in her book ‘Exotic England’. Unpicking England’s relationships with many parts of the Empire, Yasmin pulls few punches were criticism is justified. Yet her England remains a nation in which she finds much of which to be proud and to celebrate.

Join us to hear Yasmin Alibhai-Brown's tough love letter to her adopted homeland.
