Andy Kershaw

The Legendary Broadcaster and Foreign Correspondent

8.00pm to 10.00pm

Fowey Parish Church, £14

Due to popular demand, we are delighted to welcome Andy Kershaw back to Fowey. Following sell-out performances throughout the UK, his show is based on his autobiography Andy Kershaw: No Off Switch. Tonight Andy will be in conversation with Daphne Skinnard, Assistant Editor, BBC Radio Cornwall, discussing his life during his travels to extreme countries operating as a foreign correspondent. Michael Palin said ‘Andy Kershaw made me travel a little further than I usually do’. Andy once went on holiday to North Korea with Christopher Hitchens and Francis Wheen; has visited 97 of the world’s 194 countries; was a reporter during the first Gulf War and turned down £50,000 to appear on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Described by Stephen Fry as ‘An amazing man and the finest British broadcaster bar none’. Join us for what promises to be a night to remember. There will be a 15 minute interval in tonight’s performance. Wine and soft drinks available.
