Victoria Coren Mitchell - Writer, Broadcaster & Poker Player


Free entertainment!

Fancy coming to watch a Heresy recording? There are tickets left for the shows at 6.30pm on Thursday March 26th and Thursday April 2nd, and apparently people from my blog can have “priority seats” if they’d like to come. No charge, of course. If you don’t know Heresy, the official blurb is this:

“Victoria Coren hosts the sixth series of the BBC Radio 4 discussion programme which dares to commit HERESY. Victoria chairs a team of highly opinionated panellists who will use their wit and wisdom to argue against narrow-minded thinking and received opinions of the day. Each week a panel of celebrity guests will join Victoria. The received opinions to be torn to shreds will include topics from the worlds of news, sport, art and popular culture. Classics from last series include: ‘Short men look silly with tall wives’, ‘The Queen is marvellous but the other Royals are a waste of Space’ and ‘Barbara was the sexy one in the Good Life’.”

  Among the guests we’ve got comedians, of course, and also a few artists, writers, musicians… It should be sparky and funny and faintly controversial. If you would like to come to one of the shows above, you’d have to be at the venue in central London by 6pm, and it would be all finished by 7.30pm.
  If you fancy it, please use the ‘leave a reply’ form below to send a message including your (real!) email address, how many tickets you’d like, and for which of the dates. And just in case there’s a swarm of requests and I have to create a sudden “competition whittle”, please also sum up in one line WHY you’d like to come!
  These ‘replies’ WON’T be put up on the website; we need your email address so that somebody can write back to let you know if you posted in time to get tickets, and if so, how to collect them on the night. I don’t have an unlimited supply, so please try to post in the next few days if you’d like to come.
  Special note to John from the ‘Wrong To Laugh?’ thread: for the April 2nd episode, one of the guests is John Cooper Clarke…. (Nb. Guests on the March 26th episode include the brilliant Arthur Smith and Grayson Perry.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Was at Monday’s recording - Germaine was very funny, but think editing might be a job! Really enjoyed it.


Victoria Coren at 3:03 am on March 19th, 2009

Thanks very much Paul - glad you enjoyed it! I think it will edit very well…
  & Hi David, good luck with the qualifiers; I’m afraid “advice for a newcomer” is a very big subject, but if you go to the top of the page and click “writing” then “Guardian poker columns” you will find a good two years of advice from me! If you scroll right down to the bottom and work upwards, it starts very simple and then develops a bit as time goes on.
  Best wishes, VC

Hi Victoria. I was just wondering if you knew when we can expect the next series of Heresy to be on air?


David Fitzpatrick at 6:16 pm on March 20th, 2009

thanks very much vicky, finding it very helpful.

i’ll see you at the final tables in MC!


Victoria Coren at 2:20 am on March 21st, 2009

Hi LC. I think Heresy will start on April 7th (6.30pm on Radio 4) but I’m not 100% certain - keep an eye on the news page on this site (either clicking on the green newsflash under the date near the top of the page, or the “news” link above that) when it updates in April - the April news will have definite broadcast dates in it.
Best, VC
  PS. Thanks to those who’ve sent funny / charming / brief (!) requests for Heresy tickets for those two nights listed - don’t think there are many more tickets now, so I’d probably best say no more applications after Monday or Tuesday next week.

William (Turrell) - your ticket is fine for this Thursday but the email with details in it is bouncing back - please post another comment with your email address, and an alternative email address if possible.
