The format will be Q&A, where Oliver will answer a series of questions taken from the audience in advance.

Interesting fact is that his mother is Eileen Derbyshire who played Emily Bishop in Coronation Street!

The £10 meeting fee, donated in full to the charities concerned, also includes plenty of networking in small groups.
