Strictly Ann Widdecombe | Fowey Festival Words & Music Du Maurier | The Cormorant Hotel Golant CornwallFormer political heavyweight and Strictly Come Dancing Star Ann Widdecombe is set to be the main attraction of the Fowey Festival of Words and Music this evening.

The 67-year-old retired Conservative Member of Parliament for Maidstone, who lives just over the Cornish Border on Dartmoor in Devon, will hold forth at St Fimbarrus Church in Fowey to tell all about her recently published autobiography, Strictly Ann.



Ex-cabinet member Ann will be discussing her 23 years in office as a politician, as well as her career as a public figure on television, both as a reality TV star and presenter of numerous shows.

She'll also be talking about her career as a novelist, which has been running since 2000.

Somerset born Ann was famous during her time as a politician for her forthright views on abortion, the ordination of women as priests, a zero tolerance policy on drugs, same-sex marriage, fox hunting, climate change and even the reintroduction of the death penalty.

However, this talk is unlikely to focus on such serious matters, with Ann set to discuss her debut novel The Clematis Tree (2000) and follow ups An Act of Treachery (2002), Father Figure (2005) and An Act of Peace (2005), as well as her recently released autobiography.

St Fimbarrus Church is less than a ten minute drive from our Fowey accommodation.
