An Audience with Alan Cumming: Tales from a Fully Packed Life.

Join multi-award-winning actor and Sunday Times bestselling author Alan Cumming, as he celebrates the publication of his new book, Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life.

Live in conversation for these exclusive events, Alan, with the help of some very special guest interviewer (to be announced), will take you on a startingly honest, poignant, and joyous roller-coaster of a ride as he shares stories from his extraordinary life. From a troubled childhood on a remote Scottish estate to his early days as a Blue Jeans photo-story model, from becoming a Tony and Olivier award-winning theatre actor to making back-to-back films with Stanley Kubrick and the Spice Girls; from Golden Globe, and Emmy Award nominated television actor, to social justice activist and LGBTQI+ advocate.

Through everything he has lived – each failed relationship or struggle with mental health, each exhilarating professional triumph, or friendship with legendary star (Liza Minnelli, Gore Vidal, Stanley Kubrick and more) – Alan will explore how each experience – good or bad – has shaped who he is today: a happy, flawed, vulnerable, fearless, middle-aged man, with a lot of baggage.

Joyous, honest, and wise, these events promise to celebrate the messiness of life with Alan’s signature storytelling and humour.

Presented by Fane in association with Canongate
