Chance to hear Dame and daughter in conversation

Broadcasting legend Dame Esther Rantzen will be in conversation with her daughter, the presenter and journalist Rebecca Wilcox, on Sunday 23 September at Theatre Royal Winchester discussing their illustrious careers, personal lives and family ties.


It’s a chance to find out what drives Dame Esther as she shares anecdotes from over 50 years in broadcasting. Having presented and starred in That’s Life, Esther, Grumpy Old Women, Strictly Come Dancing and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! among many, many others, Dame Esther is also well known for her tireless campaigning. As the founder of ChildLine and more recently The Silver Line, her charity work is legendary and life changing.


Awarded an OBE in 2011 for services to broadcasting, a CBE in 2016 for services to children and a DBE in 2015 for services to children and older people, Dame Esther is one of the country’s national treasures.


Her daughter Rebecca Wilcox began her varied and fascinating television career as an undercover reporter on Conning The Conmen. She is a regular reporter on Watchdog and a well-known consumer journalist who presents shows such as Your Money Their Tricks.


The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk and from the Box Office 01962 840 440.
