What's the talk about?
Robin Tudge is a writer based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who has lived and worked in Chicago, Moscow, Hanoi, Beijing and Pyongyang, and among other tomes wrote the pioneering Bradt Guide to North Korea, now in its third edition. He has visited North Korea several times since 2001 and led tours there in 2013 and 2015 for the leading tour company, Koryo Tours. He is to present an illustrated talk on travelling to that impoverished, surprising country, so show what can really be seen beyond the Potemkin illusion.
This event has a small charge £5/£3 on the door.
