Politics and the Media: Head-to-Head with Robert Peston & Matthew d’Ancona

The Politics Festival 2017
Spoken Word / Saturday, 24 June 2017 - 6:00pm / Hall One
£29.50 – £14.50 | Savers £9.50*

Robert Peston interviews Matthew d’Ancona, then Matthew d’Ancona interviews Robert Peston in a unique event. Why did the established media fail to identify what was really motivating voters in the general election? Can we trust them in future? Will they have to change the way they report?


Robert Peston is a British journalist and presenter. From 2006 to 2015, he was the business editor and then economics editor for the BBC. He is currently the political editor of ITV News and hosts a political discussion programme Peston on Sunday.

Matthew d’Ancona writes a weekly column for the Guardian. He was previously editor of the Spectator and also writes for the Evening Standard and GQ. He was the Sunday Telegraph’s political columnist for 19 years. He is a visiting research fellow at Queen Mary University of London, author of several books including In It Together: The Inside Story of the Coalition, and chairman of the thinktank Bright Blue.
