Generously sponsored by

BaillieGifford

Ian Hislop makes a very welcome return to the Festival to talk about a subject close to his heart and one that is the subject of his new BBC film. In conversation with Guy Walters, he will be discussing slums, workhouses, philanthropists and the Dickensian world with his unique blend of deep knowledge, wit and acute observation.
