John Bercow in Ely
Topping & Company Booksellers of Ely are delighted to announce an evening with John Bercow. The irrepressible former speaker of the House of Commons is making fewer than a handful of national appearances to publicise his much-anticipated book of memoirs.
Unspeakable is John Bercow’s characteristically forthright and incisive account of his unique vantage-point into British politics. Containing verdicts on many of the leading figures of this era, from Tony Blair to David Cameron, Theresa May, and Boris Johnson, Bercow explores and explains the ways in which he has sought to democratise the business of Parliament, using the Speakership to champion the rights of backbench MPs and hold the government to account.
As well as being able to attend the occasion you’ll have a chance to meet John, who will be signing copies of the first-edition hardback book. The cost is £20.00. This price includes admission to the event at Ely Cathedral at 7.30pm on Friday 14th February. For couples, a second admission can be obtained for £7.00 which may be redeemed, on the night only, against another copy of the book. The doors will open at 6.45pm; all seating is unreserved.
We look forward very much to a unique evening and strongly urge you to book early. Demand will be high.
