Kicking off tonight's event will be a screening of the brilliant British film A Private Function (1984), followed by a conversation with the great man himself all taking place at the beautiful Open Venue who are sponsoring tonight's event.
Michael started his career as a television writer for shows such as The Frost Report. He's fondly remembered as a founding member of one of the best known comedy groups in the world - Monty Python and helped to create not only Monty Python's Flying Circus but films such as The Holy Grail and Life of Brian.
Since his Python days, Michael's film credits have continued to flourish with critically acclaimed films such as A Private Function, The Missionary, A Fish Called Wanda, Fierce Creatures & Brazil. He's also presented some of the most memorable travel documentaries in the world. These include Around the World in 80 Day's, Pole to Pole, Sahara and Brazil with Michael Palin.
Tonight's Q&A will be led by Peter Bradshaw (Writer and Film Critic for The Guardian).
Plus we are also pleased to announce that Norwich BID will be our main supporter this year.
