The lobby of Avalon’s office in west London is dominated by two monsters. One is a huge cast of Lenin in full declamation, the other is a Dalek. A visitor’s first thought is that you would not want to get on the wrong side of this entertainment giant – one-third talent agency, one-third live show promoter, one-third TV production company – or its famously effective Managing Director and co-founder, Jon Thoday. You would want Avalon and its boss fighting for you.
So before the sun miraculously parts the clouds, the daffodils thrust their heads through the earth and the rain stops, there is just time to catch up on all top TV that you may have missed.
Baddiel will talk about David Baddiel On The Silk Road, recounting his adventures along the most famous trade route in history. David will also be chatting about his career in television and his thoughts on the future. Packed with stories and clips from the show, this promises to be an unmissable and highly entertaining evening.
This event is now sold out.
