By: stagedoorscribbler - March 5, 2018

John Sergeant

In a career that saw him shine as both Chief Political Correspondent for the BBC and Political Editor at ITN, John Sergeant became one of THE major observers and commentators on Britain’s changing political fortunes.

His award-winning Westminster years  saw him at the centre of the action interviewing big political hitters like Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair. 

Although he has now left the front-line, John who brings An Audience with John Sergeant to Norfolk on Friday 9th March has maintained his position as one of Britain's most popular and respected broadcasters and authors.

 In recent years he has returned to his first love of light entertainment and can be seen regularly on programmes like The One ShowHave I Got News For You, QI, Room 101 and the News Quiz, and of course there were those appearances on Strictly..

More recently there have been well received documentaries as well including  John Sergeant's Tourist Trail, Tracks of Empire - about the Indian Railways, and Britain's First Photo Album about the pioneering photography of Francis Frith.

Hear about some or all of this and learn what John thinks of the chaos of Brexit Britain when he brings An Audience with John Sergeant to The Auden Theatre at Greshams School in Holt, Norfolk on Saturday (9th March). More info at www.audentheatre.co.uk
