This Funzing Experience:

Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other with MI5 whistleblower and author Annie Machon - at one of our unique Dim Sum Talks.

Delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling an 8 item selection of Yang Sing's finest dim sum & bowl food.

Love him or loathe him, Donald Trump's election as US President certainly put a ginger tom cat amongst the elite American pigeons. The push-back from the American establishment began immediately. The designated villain-in-chief: Russia.

Now the UK has joined in - following the poisoning of former MI6 agent, Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, the UK government has already condemned Russia, although the ongoing police investigation could take months.

Using her experience as a former British intelligence officer as well as her current work with notable CIA, NSA and FBI whistleblowers, Machon will look beyond the screaming media headlines.

Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.

Venue: Yang Sing, China Town - Manchester

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
