Marina Hyde: What Just Happened?!, with Nosheen Iqbal

Thursday, 13th October, 2022    
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Squire Performing Arts Centre
Arboretum St, NG1 4JB, Nottingham, NG14JB

In What Just Happened?! Marina Hyde slashes her way through the hellscape of post-referendum politics, where the chaos never stops. Clamber aboard as we relive every inspirational moment of magic, from David Cameron to Theresa May to Boris Johnson. Marvel at the sights, from Trumpian WTF-ery to celebrity twattery. And boggle at the cast of characters: Hollywood sex offenders, populists, sporting heroes (and villains), dastardly dukes, media barons, movie stars, reality TV monsters, billionaires, police officers, various princes and princesses, wicked advisers, philanthropists, fauxlanthropists, telly chefs, and (naturally) Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s the full state banquet of crazy – and you’re most cordially invited.

Drawn from her spectacularly funny Guardian columns, What Just Happened?! is a welcome blast of humour and sanity in a world where reality has become stranger than fiction.

Marina Hyde is an English journalist. She joined The Guardian newspaper in 2000 and, as one of the newspaper’s columnists, writes three articles each week on current affairs, celebrity, and sport. Hyde was nominated as Columnist of the Year in the 2010 British Press Awards.


Marina will be joined by Nosheen Iqbal – Nosheen Iqbal. Nosheen is the presenter of Today in Focus, the Guardian‘s daily news podcast, one of the top ten most listened to podcasts in the UK. She worked as the Guardian’s women’s editor, as a commissioning editor on g2. And has been a judge at the Edinburgh comedy awards.
