Michael Palin: on North Korea and Other Travels
In conversation with Mariella Frostrup

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to join Michael Palin – Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter – for an exclusive evening of fascination and adventure, in conversation with Mariella Frostrup.

Michael will discuss his most recent travels into the notoriously secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. A land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy while the cities boast gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground commuter stations; a country that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.

Michael Palin’s travels have taken him all around the world, and he will also regale us with tales of his personal journey from a life of comedy to adventurer and historian.

Mariella Frostrup is a writer, broadcaster and campaigner, and in 2019 published Wild Women, a collection of more than 50 of the greatest escapades ever experienced and told by women.
