An evening with Dame Stella Rimington

An evening with Dame Stella Rimington
 
  7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Known worldwide as the inspiration for Dame Judi Dench’s character ‘M’ in the James Bond films, Dame Stella Rimington is now an iconic face of British espionage.

Dame Stella was appointed head of the Security Service (better known as MI5) in 1992 - the first woman to take the post and the first Director General to have been publicly named in the government’s spirit of openness. Having worked in the main fields of MI5 - counter-subversion, counter-espionage and counter-terrorism - she went on to successively become Director of all three branches, before retiring in 1996.

Now an acclaimed writer, Dame Stella’s most recent book, The Moscow Sleepers, is the tenth in her ‘Liz Carlyle’ thriller series. Her autobiography Open Secret is also widely revered.

Join us for this very special event at The National Archives, as Dame Stella discusses her life, career and writing.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine.
