Gavin Esler HBF@QH We are delighted to welcome Gavin Esler back to Hexham to talk about his new book; 'Britain is Bigger than This' in a special spotlight event in partnership with Queen's Halll Arts. Journalist Gavin Esler presented the BBC current affairs show Newsnight for 12 years. Drawing on his decades long experience as a political commentator Esler sheds light on the failures at the heart of Britain’s political system in this riveting new book. Covering recent events that indicate a government in crisis – the MP expenses scandal, Brexit, ‘Partygate’ and the farcical premiership of Liz Truss, he discusses the fundamental flaws in core institutions and the practical solutions we can implement to build a better future. Booking for this event has now closed.
