A CONVERSATION – AND A CURRY – WITH JEREMY BOWEN

Join multi-award winning journalist Jeremy Bowen for a conversation – and an award-winning curry – in Cardiff on 7th November.

The BBC‘s  Middle East Editor is the special guest at the Journalists’ Charity autumn dinner  at the celebrated “Purple Poppadom” restaurant. It has been organised by the charity’s Wales branch and combines excellent food with the chance to share the experiences of one of Britain’s top journalists*.

Jeremy, who was born and educated in Cardiff, is one of the charity’s “ambassadors”.  He joined the BBC in 1984 and as a war correspondent has covered many of the word’s trouble spots. He became Middle East Editor in 2005. Earlier this year he revealed he had undergone bowel cancer treatment .

The charity’s Wales branch was formed in 2014 has been active in setting up the Welsh Media Awards and running fund-raising events such as quizzes and guest speaker evenings. Previous curry nights have sold out quickly as space is limited. Tickets are just £27.50. See the menu and reserve your place now by visiting/click here:
