Tony Benn coming to Shanklin Theatre

Retired Labour MP and former cabinet member under Harold Wilson, Tony Benn will be holding an evening of discussion with a host of lucky participants at the Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight next month.                               

Taking place on September 16th and kicking off at 19:30 BST, the evening will consist of some straight talking and frank expressions of views, as well Mr Benn offering a number of anecdotes from his time at the heart of British politics.

"I think people are fed up with sound-bites, spin, sensation and scandal from politicians," he commented. "What people really want is a chance to discuss issues that affect all our lives and to have that discussion in a sensible, uninterrupted and civilised manner."

With this in mind, the former politician will be discussing his views on the modern Labour party, as well as opening up the floor to debate on the nature of politics in the 21st century and the issues that really interest and impact people today.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801622297-ADNFCR
