We are sorry to inform you that, due to health reasons, Michael Palin will no longer be able to come to Bristol on 17th October. We will be in touch if we are able to reschedule this event in 2020, which we very much hope to be able to do. St George’s box office are contacting all ticket buyers to arrange refunds.
Join Michael Palin, Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter, for a glimpse of life inside the notoriously secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy but where the cities have gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground train stations.
In this illustrated talk, Michael Palin will give the inside story of his acclaimed Channel 5 documentary, delivered with his trademark warmth and wit. He’ll recount his conversations with the country’s inhabitants, talk candidly about his encounters with officials, and give us a unique insight into a country entirely unlike any other he has visited, a country that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.
A copy of Michael Palin’s latest book North Korea Journal is included with single tickets. There is an option to purchase 2 tickets with 1 book.

How to Book/
St George’s has recently installed a new Assisted Listening System called Sennheiser MobileConnect. Using WiFi, visitors to St George’s can now get superior quality live audio from concerts, talks, and exhibitions fed directly to their smart phone, or similar device – either through headphones or via a necklace for hearing aid users. The sound levels can be adjusted on your device to suit your needs and the House Team will be happy to assist you with this. The Sennheiser MobileConnect system has been installed to combat the poor coverage to the more traditional hearing loop within the main hall. Headphones/necklaces can be booked via the Box Office in advance or borrowed on the day, for a refundable deposit of £5. Visitors can download the Sennheiser MobileConnect app using the links below to use on their own device and can also use their own headphones. Please speak to the Box Office Team for more information at the time of booking.
