Our Patron will appear at Huddersfield Town Hall for an exclusive event to talk about how his love of words has lead to his glittering career
Sir Patrick Stewart OBE is one of the world’s most gifted and best loved actors in addition to being one of Yorkshire’s most famous sons. But did you know that he is also a patron of Huddersfield Literature Festival?
As such, we’re delighted that he will appear at the Festival this year on Friday 16 March at Huddersfield Town Hall. Sir Patrick will be in conversation with playwright, broadcaster and journalist Nick Ahad, talking about his love of words and how different stories have inspired him and lead to his professional career as an actor.
As well as a distinguished career as a stage actor, including many Shakespearean roles, Sir Patrick is known for his portrayals of Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Menseries of movies and Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series and movies of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Nick Ahad has written for radio, TV, film and the theatre. He is also a print and broadcast journalist, and has a regular show on BBC Radio Leeds.
Tickets are available online through Huddersfield Town Hall or call the Town Hall Box office on 01484 225755
