Pandora Sykes to tour UK

Journalist and "The High Low" podcaster Pandora Sykes will tour the UK in July to celebrate the publication of her debut book, How Do We Know We’re Doing it Right?, in a collaboration between events organiser Fane and publisher Hutchinson.

The tour will take an initial four dates in London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Bristol beginning 14th July at London's Southbank Centre and concluding on 30th July at St George’s Hall, Bristol.

The synopsis of How Do We Know We’re Doing it Right? reads: “Modern life is full of choices. We’re told that happiness lies within and we can be whoever we want to be. But with endless possibility comes a feeling of restlessness. What does the right life even look like? And why do so many women feel like they’re getting it wrong?”

Sykes will be joined on stage with a special guest, exploring “the anxieties and myths that consume our everyday lives and the tools we use to muddle through.”

A journalist and speaker, Sykes is a former editor and columnist for the Sunday Times Style and an Elle contributing editor. She has also written for the Telegraph, Observer, GQ, Red, Marie Claire, Vogue and ES Magazine. Sykes is the co-host of the weekly pop-culture and current affairs podcast "The High Low", which has more than one million monthly listeners.

Tickets go on sale 12th March at 10 a.m. via www.fane.co.uk/pandora.
