Words Weekend is very proud to present legendary DJ Norman Jay MBE as you’ve never quite seen him before: away from his iconic decks and in conversation exploring his enthralling life story, as captured in his much-anticipated new memoir Mister Good Times.

Interviewed live on stage by a very special guest interviewer (to be announced) expect tales of his adventures interspersed with carefully selected tracks that defined his experiences. From growing up as a black kid in a (largely white) working class world; of vivid, often violent, experiences on the football terraces; of Northern Soul nights, warehouse parties and illegal raves; of sound systems, the good and bad times of the Notting Hill carnival, the heady days of pirate radio, Rare Groove and the burgeoning British dance music scene; of how Jay became a central, formative figure within this colourful and vibrant milieu as it evolved from a tight-knit underground community to the global, hugely successful industry it is today.

With discussions on race, class, ambition and glamorous success, all set against the backdrop of a great social change, join us as we celebrate Norman Jay MBE, a man who has lived his life on his own terms and helped define a new British culture.

Presented by Words Weekend.

This is a 14+ event (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).
