In a rare appearance, award-winning writer and director Sally Wainwright (creator of Gentleman Jack, Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax) brings the story of Gentleman Jack to Bristol.

Sally is joined by Anne Choma, the series historian, researcher and author of ‘Gentleman Jack: The Real Anne Lister’. In a special twist to the evening, award-winning duo O’Hooley and Tidow, creators of the show’s title track will perform a selection of songs celebrating extraordinary women.

Hear about the story behind the show, and its journey to primetime. Get an insight into Anne Lister and the creativity that drives one of the UK’s most celebrated directors. Chaired by Finn Mackay.

The event is produced by Indigo in collaboration with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
