Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.
Sir Michael recently visited hospital in order to undergo minor surgery on his back. Though unexpected, this was a routine and successful operation. Healing time for the procedure usually takes around 6 to 8 weeks to make a full recovery, so as advised by his doctors, Sir Michael will be taking this time to recuperate.
In light of this, Sir Michael will be altering his schedule accordingly, meaning that unfortunately he won’t be able to attend the Rochdale Festival this year but he sends this message; ‘I’m sorry to disappoint and apologies for the late notice but sadly it was unavoidable. I hope to be back to my best soon and I look forward to performing at the Festival next year’.
We celebrate the life and career of a man who, during more than 50 years in the business, has interviewed over 2000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries and won awards for journalism, radio and television broadcasting.
In conversation with his son, Mike, and showing highlights from the Parkinson archive, this is a unique opportunity to get an intimate, entertaining and informative look at Sir Michael’s remarkable journey from Yorkshire pit village to the top of those famous stairs, whilst re-living the best moments from his iconic Saturday night show.
