“All around the world, for hundreds of years, wherever war and strife break out, foreign correspondents have been engaged in uncovering the latest news and - despite all obstacles - reporting it by whatever means available,” say promoters.

“It’s a working life that is difficult, exciting and undeniably glamorous. If anyone has the right to tell the story of these correspondents then John Simpson is surely that man.”

The talk is expected to last an hour, followed by questions. There will be meet and greet and book signing opportunity after the talk.

The visit takes place on Tuesday March 14.

Admission costs £10 (redeemable against the price of the book).

Doors open at 6.45pm for a 7.30pm start.
