Luxury London hotel guests will have the chance to attend a special talk from the renowned broadcaster and author Melvyn Bragg at the Southbank Centre this May.

Taking place as part of the London Literature Festival, the May 22nd event will see Bragg discussing his latest novel, an emotional family drama called Grace and Mary.

Bragg will be most familiar to audiences as the presenter of The South Bank Show and BBC Radio 4's In Our Time, while his past novels include The Maid of Buttermere, The Soldier's Return and A Son of War.

His new book is a powerful story about a man whose mother is succumbing to dementia, prompting him to find out more about her youth and family history.

Those planning to attend could take advantage of the 3 Nights for the Price of 2 deal at The 41 Hotel, which offers unbeatable value for money, plus full access to a 24-hour butler service and "Plunder the Pantry" offer.
