To a degree all creative writing is autobiographical. Most writers draw to some extent on their own experience to create character and narrative. But when does fact blur into fiction and fiction fact?

The narrative arc of Melvyn Bragg’s most recent quartet of novels (The Soldier’s Return to Remember Me) closely mirrors the author’s own well-publicised story. In this special event the broadcaster, writer and novelist explores the subtle interplay between the imagined and the real in the creation of fictions and telling of stories.

Melvyn Bragg is one of Britain’s pre-eminent broadcasters, writers and cultural commentators. His four-decade-long career has been punctuated by a series of media milestones: from his 30-year tenure of London Weekend Television’s flagship arts programme The South Bank Show to a series of BBC Radio 4 staples including Start the Week (88-98), The Roots of English (99-2001) and the station’s weekly history of ideas programme In Our Time.

‘Bragg has established himself over the past decades as a fearlessly dedicated popular educator…’ John Sutherland, The Sunday Times
