Event details

Using humorous insights from her past and present, multi-award-winning comedy and drama writer Georgia Pritchett reflects on a life lived anxiously.

Based on her memoirs My Mess is a Bit of a Life, Georgia’s talk has everything you could want - hamsters, one-legged action men, the Queen, budgies, questionable fashion choices, Robertson’s Giant Limb, the word ‘vagina’ and Jimmy Osmond.

Filled with warmth and humour, insight and honesty, Georgia offers a brilliant and amusing meditation on how to live with worry.


This in conversation event is hosted live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
