Andy Kershaw – The Adventures of Andy Kershaw
April 6, 2017 @ 7:30 pm£12 – £14
An evening with the legendary broadcaster and foreign correspondent.
Andy’s one-man show has become a hugely successful highlight of many literary festivals – including a sold-out appearance at Hay on Wye – and a popular draw at theatres and arts centres around the UK.
Fascinating and often hilarious, the two hour audio-visual presentation treats the audience to recollections from a life spent on the front lines of rock & roll, and on the front lines of some of the world’s most extreme and dangerous countries.
“The finest British broadcaster bar none. A real broadcast journalist, a real achiever, a real someone, an amazing man” – Stephen Fry
“A national treasure and born again hero” – Daily Telegraph
“Andy Kershaw is such an enthusiast. He made me travel a little further than I normally do. He has an ability to do things first and ask questions afterwards. Not a recipe for a safe, secure life, maybe, but it makes things a lot more interesting for the rest of us” – Michael Palin
“It’s his ability to convey a sense of moment-by-moment aliveness that makes Andy Kershaw the greatest living English-language broadcaster” – Toby Litt
“Kershaw has had one hell of a life…strange and comic” – The Independent on Sunday
“His radio appearances have become rare. He’s an intermittent eruption, making everything before and after sound as if it were made by zombies” – New Statesman
