Keith Brymer Jones Live: Life, Clay and Everything

Keith Brymer Jones Live: Life, Clay and Everything

Presented by Saffron Hall

Spend a hilarious and uplifting evening with renowned British designer, bestselling author and Great Pottery Throw Down judge, Keith Brymer Jones, as he shares stories of life in front of and behind the potter’s wheel.

Dancer. Front man in an almost famous band. Judge on The Great Pottery Throwdown. How did all that happen?

Join Keith for these exclusive live events, where he’ll be in conversation with his beloved wife, actor Marj Hogarth – their relationship and on-stage chemistry making for a live show like no other. Marj will guide Keith through tales from his fascinating life and career, from designing ceramic ranges for top retailers to throwing in his studio in Whitstable, and everything in between. He’ll pay tribute to the people, happy coincidences and memorable moments that have made his life what it is – from the art teacher who changed his life to the nearly-famous band he fronted.

What’s more, Keith will take the audience on a journey through shapes, giving an exclusive on-stage demonstration at his much loved pottery wheel and sharing his advice and top tips about working with clay. He will also talk about how and why he decided to become a judge on The Great Pottery Throwdown on Channel 4.

Hilarious, at times heart-wrenching, but most definitely entertaining, this is a one-off live experience with the man himself exploring life, clay, and, well…everything!
