Friend of Tortoise Exclusive

In conversation with Ed Balls

In conversation with Ed Balls

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

There’s a lot to know about Ed Balls. He’s a former Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer and former Chief Adviser to the UK Treasury. He’s also an ex-Strictly Come Dancing contestant, a diehard Norwich City fan, a former Financial Times leader writer and a concert pianist. His latest book Appetite blends recipes and memories. Ed joins us live in the Tortoise newsroom for a wide-ranging conversation on his life and politics, and about the meaning of “Global Britain” and the role of “tax and spend” in the modern British age.
