Programme announcement: Jon Ronson’s Psychopath Afternoon

The latest event to be confirmed for our 2018 festival is Jon Ronson’s Psychopath Afternoon at The Lowry on Saturday 20 October. In this special matinee show, Jon Ronson recounts the adventure of a lifetime – the funny, terrifying and utterly compelling events that led to his bestselling book The Psychopath Test.

The event will feature very special guests Mary Turner Thomson and Eleanor Longden. Neither Mary nor Eleanor appear in Jon’s book, but it wouldn’t exist without them. We don’t want to spoil the extraordinary twists and turns in their stories so if you don’t know who they are, don’t Google them. The less you know the better.

Jon Ronson is a journalist and writer of International best-selling books such as Them, The Men Who Stare at Goats, The Psychopath Test and So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed.
