Broadcast live from London’s Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character. From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful descriptions of the War on Terror in The Night Manager, A Most Wanted Man and A Delicate Truth, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century.
In a rare public appearance and one-off event, the author reads from his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, which sees the return of his most iconic Cold War characters, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a unique question and answer session, this is an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words.
In conversation le Carré discusses the full breadth of his career spanning five decades, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.
Through this event John le Carré and the producers The Ink Factory are raising money for Médicins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders (MSF), and are donating their proceeds to the charity.
Doors open at 7pm, and the screening commences at 7.45pm with a pre-show segment with the event proper starting at 8pm. You are purchasing a seat in the stalls area (downstairs) at the venue, but seating is unallocated.
We have space for up to 10 wheelchairs, and an accessible toilet. To reserve a wheelchair space and adjacent seat(s) please email email@example.com.
There is a kiosk with a bar in the foyer which is open prior to the screening and during any interval.
There is no parking at the Picture House, but town has several car parks and on street parking near to the cinema.
We are a cash only venue, and do not accept cards.
