An Evening with Sally Wainwright

April 19, 2024 @ 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Tickets: £35

On Friday 19th April we welcome BAFTA-winning television writer, director and producer Sally Wainwright to the Athenaeum.

From her early days at the University of York and the Leeds Playhouse, through The Archers, Coronation Street and At Home with the Braithwaites to her popular and critically acclaimed dramas Gentleman Jack and Happy Valley, Sally has established herself as one of Britain’s leading television writers. In recent years she has turned her hand to directing and now produces her own work. From detective shows to comedy to costume drama, her work attracts millions of viewers and her many fans at the Athenaeum will not want to miss the opportunity to meet her.

I am delighted that Sally has offered to take a break from her busy schedule to pop over from Yorkshire for a night at our club. Sally will be ‘in conversation’ with our Chair the esteemed broadcaster Roger Phillips.  We will then enjoy a three course dinner in the Dining Room, after which we can relax in the Newsroom until closing time.

Do not miss the chance to meet one of the most successful (and nicest!) writers of her generation. Book early via the members’ website or at reception.
