A picture of Michael Parkinson


Join legendary TV interviewer Sir Michael Parkinson as he shares his life-long love affair with sport, in an engaging in-conversation event with his son, Mike Parkinson.

Parkinson rose through the ranks of Barnsley cricket along with his friends Dickie Bird and Geoffrey Boycott. And while they went on to find fame on the field, he made his name writing and talking about sport. His new memoir, My Sporting Life, is a captivating love letter to the heroes and legends that inspired him.

Parkinson will regale us with fascinating anecdotes and stories about his encounters with some of the biggest names in sports. 

During a glittering career spanning more than 50 years, this doyen of TV interviewing has sparred, verbally at least, with Muhammad Ali, and been dazzled by George Best. In this not-to-be-missed event, Parkinson shares stories and anecdotes from the many icons of sport that he’s met and reflects on a life writing about his greatest passion.
