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/

Book online or purchase tickets in person at St George’s Box Office or on Tel: 0845 40 24 001 Mon – Sat 10:00-18:00.  Tickets can be posted if requested at a charge of £1 covering postage and stationery. There is no charge for collecting tickets from Box Office in advance. Alternatively select print-at-home tickets, also available to show on your smart phone (for events with reserved seating). St George’s doesn’t charge admin or booking fees (policy introduced 1 January 2018).

Free carer tickets are available for each full paying ticket holder who requires someone to assist them with their visit. Please contact St George’s Box Office about this.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit or issue refunds to latecomers. Please allow enough time to collect your ticket/s from the box office (if these haven’t already been posted to you), and make sure to arrive before the advertised start time to take your seat/s. Refunds are usually only available if an event is cancelled.

The Festival of Ideas endeavours to hold its events in venues that are accessible to all, but if you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct. St George’s Bristol regrets that due to St George’s listed-building status there is limited access to some parts of the building. However, St George’s welcomes customers with additional needs and there is a dedicated accessible entrance from Charlotte Street via a lift. Please mention your particular needs to the Box Office staff when you book and they will give you all the assistance and advice you need. Limited parking space is available for disabled ‘Blue Badge’ holders in the adjacent car park but must be reserved in advance – call the Box Office to check availability. Guide dogs are admitted to all parts of the venue. Accessible toilet facilities are located within the Bar, accessible by lift.

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.
