Jarrow: Road To The Deep South with Stuart Maconie

11th April 2019 – 

In October 2016, writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie walked 300 miles from Jarrow to London retracing the Jarrow Crusade 80 years on, through a divided, complex country that echoes 1936 in many ways.

From choral evensong to curry house, from austerity to affluence, join him on an entertaining, impassioned, enlightening journey through Britain then and now.

Stuart is a bestselling author of travel, culture and social history books as well as one of Britain’s most prolific TV and radio presenter and DJ, co-hosting daily the Radcliffe and Maconie Show on BBC 6 Music, as well as presenting The Freak Zone, also on BBC 6 Music. He has written and presented many shows on BBC Radio and on TV and won the Sony Radio Award for Music Broadcaster of the Year.

As a writer and journalist, he has written for Q Magazine, Elle, The Times, The Guardian amongst others and was an assistant editor for NME.

Stuart’s books include: Pies and Prejudice, Adventures on The High Teas, Cider with Roadies, Hope and Glory and The Peoples Songs. His work has been compared with Bill Bryson, Alan Bennett and John Peel and he has been described by The Times as a national treasure.
