Nadiya Hussain - Finding My Voice

Storyhouse, Chester

See all dates for Chester Literature Festival 2019

Born on Christmas Day to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain grew up in a Muslim family with five siblings. She entered an arranged marriage aged twenty, becoming a wife and mother herself; suffers with panic disorder; and had never been on a train on her own until she travelled to audition for The Great British Bake-Off: ‘I was everything – a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother – but I still was nowhere near finding me.’

This Autumn, Nadiya will be interviewed live on stage to celebrate the publication of her brand new book Finding My Voice. Join the TV presenter, cook and bestselling author, as she considers her roles as mother, Muslim, working woman and celebrity, and questions the barriers which many women must cross to be accepted or heard. In her own warm, honest and humorous way, Nadiya highlights how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues despite our cultural, social and religious differences.
