Artistic Fields presents : Tom Parfitt in conversation with Victoria Drew – Batty

May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Author and Moscow correspondent for The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph for twenty years, Tom Parfitt will be in discussion with Victoria Drew-Batty about his recently published book ‘High Caucasus’, in which he describes his 1,000 mile walk across the mountainous North Caucasus region of southern Russia.

During his extraordinary journey, Tom crossed the ethnic, religious and political fault lines of seven Russian republics, including Chechnya and Dagestan – walking through bear-haunted forests, circling some of Europe’s highest peaks and finding companionship with local people along the way.

Tom will reflect on his personal motives for undertaking the journey, Russia’s imperial past in the region and comparisons between the wars in the North Caucasus and the Ukraine of today.

Tom will also be signing copies of his latest published book ‘Caucasus’ after the talk.

Book via the Fisher Theatre website. Tickets £7.50
