Delia Smith – Live on Stage in London

In Conversation With Alastair Campbell

Join Logo

Join Britain’s best-loved cookery writer for a call to step back and think more profoundly about the value of the ‘examined life’ and why we need it now more than ever.

Delia Smith earned our trust as one of our most-respected cookery writers.  Now she invites us to join her in stepping back and thinking more deeply about ourselves and our world.

We know science is awesome, as are its achievements. Yet so far scientists have managed to side step the most awesome reality of all, the true nature of human life, the source of their own genius. How is it that in the overwhelming immensity of the cosmos, on microscopic earth, human beings exist?

It’s only when we step away from the noise and take time to reflect that we can see how each of us has a responsibility in the universe and are part of a vast and continuing process.  Thinking more deeply in this way can help to inspire insights into who we are – and how we can work together to solve the urgent problems of our age.

In this live on stage event, Delia will draw upon writers who have inspired her, including Maslow, Viktor Frankel, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Peter Kropotkin, arguing that humans are finally coming of age. It’s time for us all to step up and think bigger and more ambitiously, and have confidence in our ability to build a future together in these uncertain times.
