Thanks to all who came to An Evening with Professor Alice Roberts in conversation with Miranda Krestovnikoff last night at The Bristol hotel.

Their obvious connection shone through as we heard about their early presenting roles, their near-death experiences and much more.

They were joined on stage by Nura Aabe from Autism Independence and Ruth Jackson from Bluebell Care Trust.

The three things everyone learned on the night were that TV producers sometimes like to scare presenters, the Somali language doesn’t have a word for autism, and to avoid A&E in the first week of August.

Missed the event? You can catch Alice in Britain’s most Historic Towns – which will be back for a second series beginning this Saturday on Channel 4. And keep an eye on our social media to be the first to hear about future events.

“We asked our youth board what they’d like to do, and they said they’d really like to do a project with the older generation from Barton Hill, and to find out more about the area. So, the project actually came from the young people,” says Giulia Bianchini who coordinates the youth theatre at Travelling Light Theatre Company.
