Ann Widdecombe guests at the Devizes Arts Festival
For years Ann Widdecombe was a hugely successful politician, an uncompromising Tory who rose to the highest ranks of her party.
For many that kind of power and influence is hard to give up but when the time came to leave Westminster Ann didn’t hesitate in reinventing herself. Within months this woman who had been regarded as one of Britain’s most serious politicians was goofing about in pantomime opposite Craig Revel Horwood.
An unforgettable stint on Strictly Come Dancing would follow and for much of the past decade Ann Widdecombe has been a regular guest on game shows and documentaries as well as writing a series of novels.
Meanwhile her An Audience with Ann Widdecombe evenngs have proved opular iun theatres , arts centres and other venues across the UK. Hear Ann talk about her fascinating life and career when she appears as a guest at the Devizes Arts Festival on Thursday (31st May). It’s well worth checkingout. How often can you hear a former Shadow Home Secretary revealing what life is really like at the centre (well OK, right of centre) of British politics? She had a formidable reputation in parliament and remains relentlessly outspoken.
However, live on stage Ann is engaging, entertaining and refreshingly down to earth.
