Following his 2015 sell out show, Michael Portillo returns to the Regent Centre by popular demand! It took Michael Portillo little more than 10 years to get a seat in the Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was a favoured leader of his party and possible future PM. A track record like that suggests a privileged friend of the rich and famous ,but since leaving the house almost a decade ago Michael has endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for solid workmanship as found in our great Victorian Railways and the daily life of ordinary hard working citizens. Listen to his story, told with more than a touch of dry wit, and then feel free to question him about it. Runtime: 90 minutes. Please note there is no interval. Tickets: £18.00 (50p of every ticket is a donation to the Regent Centre Development Fund)
