Marriages

‘Reader, I married him’ is among the world’s most famous literary quotes. Why? Marriage is one of the most life-changing of events, rivalled only by births and deaths – our entry and exit from this world.

Comedian George McEncroe gets serious about these milestones – and how they can transform us – with the help of guests who’ll share their personal and professional experiences.

George will apply her signature wit as she dives deep into the conversational waters, navigating the big issues from all angles.

Guests will include Monica Dux, Fabian Dattner, Jane Fisher, Kaz Cooke and Molly Carlile.
