Rory Stewart - Politics on the Edge

Following a number of sold-out 2023 events, Rory will be taking to the stage once more. Rory will reflect on how, over the course of a decade, he went from being a political outsider to standing in for the prime minister - before being sacked from a Conservative Party that he had come to barely recognise.

This fine, perceptive book incisive, thoughtful... far more concerned with the business of good government than with the small - time idiocies of party politics.
- John Simpson
One of the best books on politics our era will see... a book of astonishing literary quality.
- Matthew Parris - Times Literary Supplement
Intense, funny, savage and profound.
- Michael Ignatieff

Tackling ministerial briefs on flood response and prison violence, engaging with conflict and poverty abroad as a foreign minister, and Brexit as a Cabinet minister, Stewart learned first-hand how profoundly hollow and inadequate our democracy and government had become.

On stage Rory will engage with populism, Brexit, global conflict and delve even deeper into the instant number 1 Sunday Times bestseller, Politics On The Edge.

With a chance to ask your own questions to the man himself, don’t miss the opportunity to hear Rory’s account of the challenges, absurdities and realities of political life.

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
