Chief of Staff - Notes from Downing Street
Venue: St Peter’s Church
15 September 2021 7:00 pm
Once a more sedate affair, over the last ten years British politics has witnessed a barrage of crises, resignations, general elections and former aides revealing the often chaotic behind the scenes world of Number 10. We welcome a man who is intimate with the political landscape of the last decade. As Chief of Staff to Theresa May during her premiership, he’ll share a never-beforerevealed look behind the famous black door, discussing the fraught negotiation as Brexit became log-jammed, the domestic tragedy of Grenfell Tower, and intense political drama. He’ll reveal what really goes on in the corridors of power – and shed a vital light on May, the most inscrutable of modern prime ministers – and give us insights into her successor – all laid out in his memoir, the definitive record of a momentous episode in Britain’s recent political history.
