Fatima Manji

Fatima Manji is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist who anchors the UK's Channel 4 News, the nation's most popular adversarial nightly news programme. She reports on major national and international stories, and is best known for breaking stories with a global impact: including the tale of Saudi princesses held hostage for years by their father the King; giving voice to the heart-rending testimonies of internally displaced Iraqis fleeing ISIS; investigating an MI5 spy accused of entrapment in Northern Ireland; and tracing the perilous journey of victims of war across the Hungarian border in the face of rising anti-migrant extremism.

This is not a Spice exclusive event and will be broadcast live by Zoom webinar. You will need a Zoom account to take part. After booking, we will send you for details of how to connect a day or two before the webinar.

It's been great to have Jill back in the office helping to put together some new events as well as rescheduling some that were unable to go ahead last year. Unfortunately, a few events that we had planned in the coming weeks have had to be adapted or postponed due to the pause to the ending of Coronavirus restrictions, but we will continue to do what we can when we can, and the speed of the vaccination programme gives us great hope that we can return to normal later in the summer.

What fun we had in York on Tuesday when Spice Military were admitted as interactive exhibits of the 20th Century Entertainment Corps at York Army Museum. We have a certificate to prove it! The museum has a range of exhibits from the 17th century right through to the story of Captain Sir Tom Moore, and we were honoured to meet Florence Nightingale too!

Ten Pin Bowling fans will be happy to hear that we have at last managed to get bookings at Sheffield on Wednesday and Leeds on Thursday. We'll be playing 'normal' bowling this month, but we will return to our usual pyramid scoring once indoor social contact restrictions are removed.
