This Funzing Experience:

Funzing is incredibly excited to announce that Shaun Attwood is returning to talk about being banged up abroad in one of America’s most dangerous prisons.

Shaun went from recreational drug user and stock-market millionaire to becoming an Ecstasy kingpin in America. He got caught and was sent to maximum security prison in Arizona. His story has been broadcast worldwide on the National Geographic program “Banged Up Abroad”. His trailer is here.

In this amazing talk, Shaun is going to tell you what it was like making millions of dollars and reaching God like status throwing raves and selling Ecstasy, to ending up in one of America’s most dangerous prisons, where gang members and even guards were murdering inmates.

“Shaun’s story is the Manchester rave scene meets The Wolf of Wall Street and ends in The Shawshank Redemption” - Jon Ronson author of The Psychopath Test

Please be aware that this talk is not for the faint hearted. Shaun will be talking about the brutal conditions in jail including murder and gang rape. Due to the nature of this talk it is strictly an 18+ event.

Dim Sum Talks are a brand new concept, taking our well known LDN Talks @ Night events - and turning them into a dining experience with a difference. Alongside Ping Pong Shepherd Bush, we've pulled together an impressive array of leading intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work get togethers.

Alongside a fascinating talk from one of our top speakers, you will receive a 6 x dim sum platter exclusively put together by the culinary experts over at the famous Ping Pong restaurant group. Ping Pong is a contemporary and lively group of restaurants serving Dim Sum, cocktails and Chinese teas. An ideal choice for a quick, light lunch or a fun night out - as they say, all the fun is in the sharing.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
