This afternoon it was announced that the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, will be appearing for a UK-exclusive, one night only at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. Mrs. Obama will be discussing her upcoming autobiography ‘Becoming’ (due for release November 13) with Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, best known for her book length essay ‘We Should All Be Feminists’.

On the evening of December 3, Mrs. Obama will be detailing intimate stories from her incredible life – including raising two daughters in the White House and First Lady duties – to a live audience of over 2500 people on London’s Southbank; it is already being described on social media as ‘London’s Event of the Year’!

If you are a member of the Southbank Centre, two tickets will be available to purchase from the venue’s website at 10AM on Wednesday November 7. If you are not a member, general sale will commence at the same time the following day (November 8). Ticket prices range from £30-125, and all tickets come with a copy of ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama.
