Ex Tory grandee Michael Portillo will talk about politics and life after the House of Commons when he appears at the Radlett Centre next Friday, October 14.

It took him more than a decade to get a seat in the Commons and during his political career, he was a Defence Secretary and Shadow Chancellor as well as Deputy Leader of his party.

But since standing down from politics in 2005, he has made a name for himself in the media, hosting several programmes about railways as well as taking on life as a single mum and dealing with the death of a school friend.

Michael is a historian at heart and will tell his story before answering questions when he comes on stage at 7.30pm.
