Peter J. Conradi on Frank Thompson

Thursday 16 May 2013, 16:15 to 17:15

Peter J Conradi’s A Very English Hero is a compelling portrait of a generation that is slipping from memory.

This event has been postponed. Festival of Ideas hopes to arrange a new date for Peter to come to Bristol in the autumn. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Gentle, modest, handsome, eccentric, a fine poet, who wrote the great poem of the Second World War, and an unlikely soldier and war hero (and also the brother of radical historian E P Thompson), Thompson was a rare combination of brilliant mind and enormous heart. Part of Bristol Festival of Ideas’ celebration of the life and work of E P Thompson.
