Price £30

English PEN presents an evening with Grayson Perry. Perry will select the works that have influenced him most and discuss these with a live audience.

Launched in 2011, ‘Inspirations’, English PEN’s annual fundraising event, offers the chance to discover the major influences in the lives and careers of leading figures in the arts. Previous speakers have included Simon Armitage, Patience Agbabi, Linton Kwesi Johnson and the late Seamus Heaney.

An award-winning artist working across a variety of media including embroidery and photography, Grayson Perry has received widest acclaim for his ceramic works. He is best known for his classically shaped vases covered with figures, patterns and text and was the first ceramic artist to win the prestigious Turner Prize. In 2014, he was awarded a CBE.

All proceeds from the ticket price go directly to fund English PEN’s programmes in defence of the freedom to write and the freedom to read.
