Storyhouse welcomes a giant of British politics to Chester to talk about his new memoir, My Life, Our Times.

Gordon Brown – Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1997 to 2007 and Prime Minister during the economic crisis of 2008 – will share unique insights into a truly tumultuous period in our country’s history, including a candid and personal reflection of key relationships in Westminster, New Labour’s 1997 landslide electoral triumph, the coalition negotiations of 2010, as well as the historic 2014 Scottish and 2016 European referendums, in each instance, offering vital lessons for the future. A not-to-be-missed chance to meet and listen to one of the key political figures of modern times.
