JOHN SIMPSON
THE LEADERS & LUNATICS TOUR

Join journalist and broadcaster John Simpson CBE as he turns 80 for an exclusive evening packed with unparalleled insights from one of the most distinguished foreign correspondents of our time.

With decades of first-hand encounters and personal dealings, John will explore the enigmatic personas of global figures such as Putin, Xi Jinping, bin-Laden and Thatcher. John will navigate the intricate web of international relations, delving into the complexities of our global issues, from conflicts, war and famines, to world economies and climate change. 
 
What links Mandela and Princess Diana? Or Zelenskiy and Mugabe? John will reveal the common threads linking these figures, and offer a unique perspective on the impact they’ve had on world affairs.
 
As a household name who has covered almost every major event in the world from the 1960's to present day, you will have an opportunity to ask John your questions – what were these leaders and lunatics really like, and what on earth is going on? Don't miss John for an evening that promises to entertain, enlighten, and inspire with his fearless journalism and captivating storytelling.
