Soul Survivor: Soul Legend PP Arnold in conversation with music journalist Lloyd Bradley

Friday 20th October

Join soul legend P.P. Arnold, in conversation with journalist and writer Lloyd Bradley, to discuss her extraordinary memoir – Soul Survivor.


From her origins in powerhouse church gospel, Arnold’s performing career began at the age of just seventeen when she joined the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. But little did the young Ikette know that her world was about to be turned upside-down…

Upon arriving in London in 1966 to support the Rolling Stones, the shy but vivacious teenager caught the eye of frontman Mick Jagger. He would persuade her to stay in the city and record as a solo artist, ultimately leading to a five-decade career working with everyone from Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, the Small Faces, Nick Drake and Barry Gibb to Peter Gabriel, Roger Waters, the KLF, Paul Weller and Primal Scream.

Although it has been far from a gilded life for the soul superstar, she survived it all. Now P.P. Arnold shares her remarkable adventures in her long-awaited memoir.

Lloyd Bradley is one of the UK’s foremost Black music experts and a seasoned cultural commentator both in print and in person. He is the author of many books and was Associate Producer of BBC2’s award winning series Reggae: The Story of Jamaican Music and among the UK’s first Black pirate radio crew on the iconic Dread Broadcast Corporation. With a background of over 30 years as a music journalist he has written for Mojo, Blues & Soul, the Independent, the Observer, Q Magazine, Esquire, Smash Hits, Music Week and the NME.

Book early for this undoubted highlight of Black History Month 2023.
