Heywood, Suzanne #2

The incredible true story of how the adventure of a lifetime became one child’s worst nightmare.

When she was just seven, Suzanne Heywood’s parents took her and her brother on what was meant to be a three-year voyage around the world. In the end the the family spent a decade at sea living through storms, shipwrecks and isolation. Heywood and her brother had little formal schooling, missed out on friendships and found their safety put at risk. Longing for normality, Heywood fought her parents, earning an interview at Oxford University aged 17 and returning to the UK.

Join Heywood as she shares the story of her extraordinary childhood, and how she went on to find success, stability and happiness.

Chaired by Simon Pryde.
