Ian Martin

In this evening hosted by writer and broadcaster Patrick Wright, comedy writer and journalist Ian Martin offers his perspective as an outside looking in on London.

Martin was part of the writing team behind the BBC series The Thick of It (2005–12) and the Oscar-nominated film In the Loop (2009). He is currently part of the team behind the HBO series, Veep. Martin writes regularly for The Guardian and has a weekly column in the Architects’ Journal. Born in London, Martin grew up in Essex and now lives in Lancaster. In this event he discusses how he sees London as an outsider: “my London is a series of goat tracks that all seem to lead to Soho.”

Part of the London Festival of Architecture.
