Terry Waite CBE : Taken on Trust

Mon 24th April 2017
7.45pm - 8.45pm
Stratford Artshouse

To mark 25 years since his release from captivity in Beirut, the envoy gives a personal account of his harrowing experiences with a fascinating insight into human life on the edge, the things people are willing to do to each other, and what it feels like to be treated so brutally. All experiences that have informed his life since his release, and his passionate engagement in Middle East issues today.

'There is an enviable directness, strength and even holiness about Terry Waite . . .   He has added a new chapter [to his book Taken on Trust], bringing his story up to date, and reflecting briefly on the current state of the Middle East.' The Telegraph

'Fascinating account of a great man . . .  His experience gives him the right to be listened to when he pleads for the establishment of trust between ordinary people of different races, cultures and religions.' Reform magazine
