Mary-Ann Ochota

24 April 2022

Broadcaster and author Mary-Ann Ochota is a familiar face at ChipLitFest as an interviewer and we’re delighted to host this event with Mary-Ann as author of and guide to the strange items and intriguing history of ancient Britain. 

From Ice Age skull caps to prehistoric fortune-telling spoons, and from world-famous sites like Stonehenge and Glastonbury, to hidden gems only the experts know about, Secret Britain reveals just how mysterious and fascinating the past can be. 

With characteristic enthusiasm and an eye for curious detail, Mary-Ann reveals the way Britain’s ancient sites and objects still resonate today. 

This event replaces I Belong Here with Anita Sethi
