Talk, Sat 24 Jun 2017



On the 15th October 1987, the absent-father of all storms was about to vent apocalyptic fury upon the south-east corner of the Kingdom of United. In a televised address to the nation, celebrity weatherman and rising national treasure, Michael Phish, relays a different forecast.

Why did this critically acclaimed winning Titan of meteorology foresee it’s arrival, but choose to tell a different story? Welcome to this world exclusive. The truth behind the Great Storm of 1987. Uncover the Why’s and wheretofores of this cataclysmic event. Encounter corporate skullduggery in the 1980’s corridors of power. Shake the hand of the man that shook the meteorological establishment.

The evening also features a chance to chat to national treasure Michael Fish CBE.
