As the dust settles on the decade from 2010-2020, Polly Toynbee and David Walker offer the definitive survey of this tumultuous era. From austerity to Brexit, food banks to Grenfell, it was marked by political paralysis and national malaise. But there were spots of light amid the darkness. Despite the cuts, the arts and creative industries flourished; some progress was made on renewable energy; same sex marriage was legalised; and crime rates reduced.Blending the numbers with illuminating insight into the everyday experiences of people across the UK, Toynbee and Walker give an unmissable account of how we got here and of what now lies ahead.This is an event in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
