Hezza swings by to tell the story of his life

Tarzan returns for a chat and summit else

Published on May 20th 2014.


Hezza swings by to tell the story of his life
 

“MR Merseyside” Lord Heseltine returns to Liverpool this summer for the International Festival for Business 2014. 

The former Deputy Prime Minister is to appear at several events at the UK’s inaugural IFB2014, which is being billed as the biggest business festival of its kind in the country for more than 60 years, featuring more than 200 events. 

The veteran Conservative politician might have been grilled by Paxman, Dimbleby and Humphrys in his glittering political career, but is he ready to run the gauntlet of questions posed by local actor Mike Neary as part of the In Conversation series? Happily, it will be more about the man and the music than the murky world of Westminster. St George’s Hall is the grand setting where Hezza's life story will be set to the soundtrack of his life on Tuesday, June 17. 

Lord H is also one of the key participants in the 300-strong BT Global City Leaders’ summit on Wednesday, June 18 and in the exhibition and conference for the UK regeneration industry, Regen 2014 on 25-25 June. 

He said: "I'm very much looking forward to being back in Liverpool.”

Lord Heseltine is most known throughout Liverpool for his work to help revive the city after the Toxteth riots and was instrumental in the redevelopment of the Albert Dock when the Merseyside Development Corporation was set up in 1981.  

The genesis of the IFB was the independent report, Rebalancing Britain: Policy or Slogan, which he co-authored with former Tesco CEO Sir Terry Leahy in 2011. 

Their main recommendation was for Liverpool to hold an expo event highlighting the city and the region as a great investment and business location. 

So they are doing.

Hi anonymous, The price includes a two and a half hour evening of entertainment*. Four in-depth interview sections and five separate live musical acts - all one-off specially commissioned musical performances for the interviewee. The evening is completely unique and our regular audience consider it great value for money. Try it...you might like it! Karen & Gem *sadly no buffet

Sorry Little Atom, it sounds a very good evening, regardless of no buffet. We would be very interested in listening to Hezza, but for the 2 of us, it would add up to best part of 70 quid just for ticket and travel, which is simply unaffordable at the moment and a so a bit of a disappointment. But then so our lots of things. I wouldn't mind going to see Barbados for a month. Not blaming you, I can see how the cost of venue hire and performers add up. And I suppose you have to bung Heseltine a few quid, get him a sarnie from Greggs and possibly a bed for the night at the Feathers. He'll probably expect the bog to be in his room as well. Hope it goes well.

You could always put him in the Adelphi, that would add another dimension to his life story.
