An Audience with Alan Cumming: Tales from a Fully Packed Life

'I always love going to Brighton! I even found touring its sewers fascinating so that shows the depth of my love! And to be talking about my new book on the same stage that Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest, well, it doesn’t get much better.' – Alan Cumming

Join multi-award-winning actor and Sunday Times bestselling author Alan Cumming, as he celebrates the publication of his new book, Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life.

Live in conversation, with the help of writer, model and presenter Jack Guinness, Alan will take you on a startlingly honest, poignant, and joyous roller-coaster of a ride as he shares stories from his extraordinary life. From a troubled childhood on a remote Scottish estate to his early days as a Blue Jeans photo-story model, from becoming a Tony and Olivier award-winning theatre actor to making back-to-back films with Stanley Kubrick and the Spice Girls; from Golden Globe, and Emmy Award nominated television actor, to social justice activist and LGBTQI+ advocate.

Through everything he has lived – each failed relationship or struggle with mental health, each exhilarating professional triumph, or friendship with legendary star (Liza Minnelli, Gore Vidal, Stanley Kubrick and more) – Alan will explore how each experience – good or bad – has shaped who he is today: a happy, flawed, vulnerable, fearless, middle-aged man, with a lot of baggage.

Joyous, honest, and wise, this event promises to celebrate the messiness of life with Alan’s signature storytelling and humour.
