A staggering 50,000 people tried to get their hands on a ticket to see Michelle Obama in conversation with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at a UK-exclusive event at Royal Festival Hall. Were you one of the 47,100 people who missed out? If so, this could be your chance…
In collaboration with Refinery29, we are SO excited to be able to give away one ticket to attend this incredible event on Monday 3rd December 2018.
Reflecting on her memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama invites the audience at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive, balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.
With unerring honesty and lively wit, she recounts her triumphs and her disappointments – both public and private – and in candidly recounting moments from her own extraordinary journey, Mrs Obama also shares life lessons learned and inspires people to become the very best version of themselves.
The moderator for the evening, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, is the bestselling author of the novels Purple Hibiscus, which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize; Half of a Yellow Sun, which won the Orange Prize; and Americanah, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award and was named one of the ten best books of 2013 by The New York Times. In 2012 she published We Should All Be Feminists and her most recent book, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, was published to great acclaim in March 2017.
Enter your details below to be in with a chance of winning a ticket to this entirely sold-out event.
The competition closes this Friday 30th November at 5pm. The winner will be announced that evening.
