Who gets to win power and how do they keep it and lose it? Who is excluded from power? Does power always corrupt or are there examples of leaders who have maintained their integrity while in authority?

Join co-presenter of the hit podcast The Rest is Politics, Rory Stewart - diplomat, explorer, cabinet minister and writer-for an evening of no-holds barred discussion on crisis, politics and the world order.

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.
