We are sorry to inform you that, due to health reasons, Michael Palin will no longer be able to take part in this tour in October.  All tickets will be refunded. 

Join Michael Palin - Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter - for a glimpse of life inside the notoriously secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Here is a land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside still operates as a peasant economy while the cities boast gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground commuter stations.

In this photographic  talk, Michael Palin will give the inside story of his acclaimed Channel 5 documentary, delivered with his trademark modesty and good humour . He’ll draw on personal  conversations with the country’s inhabitants, talk candidly about his encounters with officials, and offer us a unique insight into a country entirely unlike any other he has visited - one that inspires fear and fascination in equal measure.

Every ticket purchase includes a copy of Michael Palin’s new book, North Korea Journal (RRP £14.99)

This is a Penguin Live and How To: Academy co-production.
