A preview of Sky’s new original drama based on Edward St Aubyn’s semi-autobiographical novels and starring BAFTA-nominated Benedict Cumberbatch. Followed by Q&A with Writer David Nicholls, Director Edward Berger, Producer Rachael Horovitz and Actress Indira Varma. The panel will be chaired by Miranda Sawyer.

Written by BAFTA-nominated David Nicholls (Cold Feet, Far from the Madding Crowd, One Day) and directed by Edward Berger (Deutschland 83, Jack), each episode of this five part series is devoted to one of the five Patrick Melrose novels. Following the harrowing yet hilarious story of Melrose (Benedict Cumberbatch), the series sweeps through the South of France in the 60s, New York in the 80s and Britain in the early 2000s.

Patrick Melrose is executive produced by Michael Jackson, Rachel Horovitz, Adam Ackland, Helen Flint and Benedict Cumberbatch. Jackson recently formed Two Cities Television and this will be the company’s first production. 

We will be screening the first episode in the series, with a total run time of 60 minutes, followed by a Q&A with cast and crew.

Tickets will be available for collection from reception.
