BOOK TICKETS
Join well-loved BBC radio presenter Justin Webb as he discusses his candid and moving memoir 'The Gift of a Radio'. and his life as a broadcaster and journalist.

Justin Webb's childhood was far from ordinary. Between his mother and step-father's psychological problems, and an absent father, life at home was dysfunctional at best. But with gun-wielding school masters and sub-standard living conditions, Quaker boarding school wasn't much better. Was it the brutal experiences of his upbringing, or an innate ambition and drive that somehow survived them, that shaped the urbane and successful radio presenter we know and love now?

‘Justin is a great broadcaster because he sounds like a real human being. This hugely entertaining book helps explain why'. John Humphrys
Copies of Justin's book will be available for purchase and signing.
