Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal

News Editor

What's On, Display in Sidebar, September


Sir Nick Young’s memoir is a fascinating and candid account of his 13 successful years as Chief Executive of the British Red Cross (2001-2014).

During this critical period he led the organisation’s response to a financial crisis, the Iraq War, the Asian Tsunami, the London bombings, a kidnapping, the fighting in Syria, media challenges, and numerous earthquakes, floods and other disasters. Nick shares the strains and the moments of personal fulfilment, relief and humour, as he played a key role in the humanitarian response to some of the 21st century’s most dramatic and dangerous events.

Nick will be in conversation with Peter Barron, formerly Editor of the Northern Echo and Deputy Lieutenant of County Durham.

This event is part of the Richmond Walking and Book Festival.

Tickets cost £12 (£6 for full-time students or those on benefits) and are available from The Georgian Theatre Royal Box Office on 01748 8225252 or online.
