Show Info

After Victoria Wood died in 2016, the trustees of her estate has asked Jasper Rees, the journalist and author, who interviewed her more than anyone else, to tell her extraordinary story in full. He was granted complete and exclusive access to Victoria’s rich archive of personal and professional material, and conducted more than 200 interviews with her family, friends and colleagues to create Lets’ Do It, a definitive portrait of a true pioneer who spoke to her audience like no one before or since.

Jasper will be interviewed by journalist and comedian Viv Groskop, author of How To Own The Room and the stand-up memoirs I Laughed, I Cried.
