One of the Deepings Literary Festival’s highlights is a wonderful Black Tie dinner. Diners will enjoy great food and great company with celebrity speaker John Sergeant, providing tales from his successful career as an author and journalist.

John covered conflicts in many parts of the world, including Vietnam, the Middle East and Southern Africa, before settling down as a political correspondent. He often travelled with the prime minister of the day, including Margaret Thatcher and John Major as well as Tony Blair. He progressed to become the BBC's chief political correspondent from 1988-2000. He left the BBC to forward his career and joined ITV News.

John was voted the ‘Best Individual Television Contributor of the Year’ at the Voice of the Listener and Viewer Awards for 1999. He writes for various journals including travel writing for the Daily Mail. John has produced a number of documentaries that include a three-part series entitled John Sergeant’s Tourist Trail. In 2015 he also appeared on The Secret Life of Books.

With regular appearances on programmes like The One Show, Have I Got News For You, QI, Room 101 and the News Quiz, John found a whole new audience through his now legendary appearances on BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing back in 2008.
