Following the mayhem when Michael Fabricant appeared on stage with the comedian Matt Forde at the St James Theatre in London – you can hear the recording here: https://soundcloud.com/thepoliticalparty/episode-14-michael-fabricant – it could all happen again at the Lichfield Garrick at 8pm on Friday 27th June.
See: http://www.lichfieldgarrick.com/Shows/An-Evening-with-Michael-Fabricant-MP and tickets can be bought from this website.
This time there will be music too as Michael chooses the 8 records he would take on a Desert Island. Playing Kirsty Young (presenter of BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’) will be Jonathan Hall. At the end of the show, Michael will take questions.
“The evening should be a lot of fun, but because it will be held in the Studio Theatre, tickets – £8.50 each – will sell fast” says Michael Fabricant. “This will be a first for the Lichfield Garrick and if it’s an utter disaster, it will be the last” adds Michael.
Michael Fabricant MP has been MP for Lichfield since 1992 and his national profile, following on from his opposition to HS2 and his subsequent sacking "via Twitter" as Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party, has never been higher. But how much do you know about Michael and where do Llamas and Ukuleles fit into his life?
Now is your chance to hear Michael talk frankly, and hopefully amusingly, about his life before politics, his political views and his inimitable approach to representing the citizens of Lichfield parliamentary constituency ahead of the next general election to be held in May 2015.
The evening will take the form made popular by Desert Island Discs with Michael in conversation with Jonathan Hall about eight records with personal meaning. Michael will also answer questions provided by the audience and from his extensive (16,000+) following on Twitter. Michael regularly reaches over 2.5 million people on twitter through re-tweets during the course of a week. Tickets will be available from the Lichfield Garrick box office (01543 412121 or www.lichfieldgarrick.com) at a price of £8.50 per ticket.
We expect the evening to be extremely popular, so you are advised to book early to avoid missing out.
