ACTOR Miriam Margolyes will take to the stage in Harrogate next month to discuss her new memoir.

The 'national treasure' will appear in Harrogate’s Royal Hall on Sunday, October 17, at 3pm, in conversation with former BBC York journalist, Anna Wallace, followed by a question and answers session from the audience.

Clair Challenor-Chadwick, MD of Cause UK, the Harrogate based agency which is hosting the show, said: “At the age of 80, Miriam has finally decided to tell her life story and it’s well worth the wait

“Miriam is the tonic we all need. She is truly a force for good, an inspirational, and endlessly entertaining person. Thank goodness for Miriam Margolyes!”

This Much is True, praised as self-critical, clever and warm, recounts tales from Scorsese to Streisand.
