An Evening with Chris Mullin

Tuesday 22 November, 7.30pm

Village Books, in association with Alleyn’s School, are delighted to welcome Chris Mullin to the MCT at Alleyn's.

All serious politicians are supposed to possess a hinterland, but not all do. Chris Mullin was one who did. Chris was a Labour MP from 1987 until 2010 and served as a minister in three departments. His successful campaign to free the innocent people convicted of the Birmingham bombings was described as 'one of the greatest feats ever achieved by an investigative reporter'.

Hinterland is a wry and revealing political memoir from the man behind the celebrated diaries A View From the Foothills, A Walk-On Part and Decline and Fall.
