We are delighted to welcome George Alagiah for the annual Noirwich Lecture, in which he will explore violence, greed and corruption in relation to his highly anticipated crime novel The Burning Land. Reflecting on the urgent, real-life impact of environmental change on some of the world’s poorest countries and the fight for resources, he will also discuss the subsequent rise in radical action.
George’s lecture will draw on a career at the BBC spanning over 30 years. As the current presenter of the BBC News at Six and previously as an award-winning BBC Foreign Correspondent he has covered genocide in Rwanda, civil wars in Afghanistan and Liberia, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa and the 9/11 terror attacks.
A chance to enjoy an evening in the company of one of the nation’s foremost journalists who has genuine insight on the state we find ourselves in.
Now that Noirwich 2019 has been revealed, we thought we'd take a retrospective look back at last year's festival. If you've never been to Noirwich before this will give you a taste of what to expect in September.Read more ⟶
