"Ryan Giggs was and still remains a fans favourite of the modern era and they still sing his name near on every game. For Manchester United fans the sheer thought of him running past defenders and scoring incredible solo goals still puts the hairs up on the back of their necks as they remember Giggs was one of the most exciting players of his generation and a rare talent for which they may never see the likes of again.
"Who knows what to expect when the Welsh-wizard Ryan Giggs takes to the stage for an extremely rare public appearance and interview about his illustrious career.
Despite being an award-winning artist, Bafta-winning TV presenter, Reith Lecturer and bestselling author, Grayson Perry is a normal person – and just like other normal people, he’s marginally aware that we’re all going to die.
Born in Essex in 1960, Grayson has had a career spanning 40 years. From his A House for Essex, a permanent building constructed in the North Essex countryside in 2015, to Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip - a three-part documentary travelogue in which he explored the meaning of the American Dream today - and Grayson’s Art Club, which brought the nation together during lockdown through art, making new works and hosting masterclasses, Perry is somewhat an expert in making lemonade out of the mundanity of life.
Let Grayson take you through an enlightening and eye-watering evening in which this kind of existentialism descends from worthiness to silliness. You’ll leave safe and warm in the knowledge that nothing really matters anyway.
Join Grayson as he asks, and possibly answers, these big questions in an evening sure to distract you from the very meaninglessness of life in the way only a man in a dress can.
Fasten your seatbelts and get ready for an awe-inspiring ride.
