March 21 @ 7:00 pm


Jonathan Calvert & George Arbuthnott recount the extraordinary political decisions taken at the heart of government during the global pandemic. With meticulous research they’ve pieced together the insider’s account of how the government sleepwalked into disaster and tried to cover up its role in the tragedy – and it exposes one of the most scandalous failures of political leadership in British history. This evening will give us an insight into crucial stories about government and leadership in the biggest crisis of our lifetimes –the result of one of the most essential pieces of investigative reporting for a generation.

Jonathan Calvert & George Arbuthnott are editor and deputy editor respectively of The Sunday Times’ renowned Insight investigative team.
