Monday 10th February

Book now

John Sergeant is the former Chief Political Correspondent for the BBC from 1992 to 2000 and ITN's Political Editor from 2000 until 2002. Many people will remember John as one of Britain's most popular and respected broadcasters and authors.

In recent years though John has returned to his first love of light entertainment and can be seen regularly on programmes like The One Show, Have I Got News For You, QI, Room 101 and the News Quiz, and of course there were those appearances on Strictly……Indeed John's two left feet approach to the arts of the ballroom consistently found him at the bottom of the judges score board, but the public loved him and he retrained week after week. He finally left the show in Week 10.

More recently there have been well received documentaries as well including John Sergeant's Tourist Trail, Tracks of Empire - about the Indian Railways, and Britain's First Photo Album about the pioneering photography of Francis Frith.
