Michael Portillo at Lighthouse

Politician turned television presenter, writer and broadcaster Michael Portillo returns to Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts, on 16 January for what promises to be a lively evening of talk and questions.

It took Michael little more than ten years to get a seat in the House of Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was widely tipped to become leader of his party and a possible future Prime Minister. It was not to be though and his political career came to a humiliating end, losing his seat in May 1997.

Michael has since reinvented and endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for the solid workmanship found in the great railways of the world, the effect of the railways on the history of countries and the daily lives of their people.

Life: A Game of Two Halves is that story, told with the wit of a “Parliamentary stand up”. Michael will open the floor to questions from the audience and be available to sign books after the show.
