What's the talk about?

Rich Peppiatt is a former tabloid reporter who earlier this year quit the Daily Star in a sensational open letter to proprietor Richard Desmond. See it here http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/mar/04/daily-star-reporter-letter-full

His talk will lift the lid on what life is really like behind the doors of Britain's red tops, what drives the journalists who work for them, and just what needs to be done to reform an industry which for too long has behaved with impunity.

In what promises to be a night packed with anecdotes from the jaw-dropping to the hilarious, Rich will take you on a tour through the pitfalls of Fleet Street.
