A Pretoria Boy: The Story of South Africa’s ‘Public Enemy Number One’
Growing up in Pretoria, the son of anti-apartheid activists, Peter Hain joined the fight against discrimination as a teenager. A Labour MP from 1991 and a member of the House of Lords since 2015, his Parliamentary career has given him a front row seat to political events including the Iraq War, Brexit and COVID-19. A Pretoria Boy: The Story of South Africa’s ‘Public Enemy Number One’ details that extraordinary journey, from Pretoria to the House of Lords.
This event is taking place at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton, as part of Buxton International Festival’s Big BIF Weekend, with a stellar line up of book, music and jazz events to enjoy on the 15 and 16 October.
