Chief of Staff: Notes from Downing Street 

Sunday 19 June: 5.15pm
Tickets: £10, £8

Gavin Barwell - Downing Street chief of staff to former Prime Minister Theresa May – offers a candid and insightful account of two hugely consequential years of history.  

Since the EU referendum of 2016, British politics has witnessed a barrage of crises, resignations and general elections. Theresa May's premiership was the most turbulent of all. In her darkest hour, following the disastrous 2017 election, she turned to Gavin Barwell to help restore her battered authority. He would become her chief of staff for the next two years - a period punctuated by Brexit negotiations, domestic tragedy, and intense political drama.  

In this gripping insider memoir, Barwell reveals what really went on in the corridors of power - and sheds a vital light on May, the most inscrutable of modern prime ministers.  

Revealing how government operates during times of crisis, this is the definitive record of a momentous episode in Britain's recent political history.  

Gavin is interviewed by Gerry Foley.
