Caitlin Moran: How to Be Famous

Inimitable comedian Caitlin Moran dives into a hilarious and thought-provoking discussion of all things famous in this laugh-out-loud event.

She talks about who the best famous people are and how to deal with it when they’re ‘problematic’; the video to Charlie XCX’s ‘Boys’; why the stone Rihanna keeps gaining and losing is awesome and normal; why ‘bad boys’ have had their day; how to tell if it was just ‘a regrettable shag’, or #metoo; #timesup; the forthcoming film of How to Build A Girl, and why we’re on the verge of a Lady Revolution.

There’s no Glastonbury this year, so Moran thought she’d put on her own version. Join in this subversive and delightful take on the best bits of the festival – dress up, gather with like-minded people, and spend the evening laughing, drinking and having thought-provoking discussions about how to change the world.

Caitlin Moran will be in conversation with Gemma Cairney, multi-award winning broadcaster, published author, production company founder, magpie, activist and life enthusiast.

A copy of Caitlin Moran’s new book How to Be Famous is included with every ticket, and the author is signing books after the event.
