Ann, aged 65, had a distinguished career as a politician before retiring at the 2010 general election. During this time she took on a range of roles, ending in Shadow Home Secretary.

Since retiring, she has written several novels, is a columnist for the Guardian and Daily Mail, and has become a celebrity after appearing as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. Recently she even made her debut at London's Royal Opera House in La Fille Du Regiment.

Ann is a Christian, and  was a member of the Conservative Christian Fellowship. Speaking recently to children from Christ The King College on the Isle of Wight, about faith and aspiration, she told them, “Don’t be discouraged...don’t expect success to come quickly and easily...and none of it’s worth doing unless it’s for God or other people”.

This talk continues a series held by St Paul’s around a central theme of "Morality in Public Life". Previous speakers have included Claudia Sturt (Deputy Director Prison Service), Melanie Phillips (columnist and public speaker) and General the Lord Dannatt (ex Chief of the Defence Staff).

Doors open 7pm on July 9th at St Paul’s, Crawley Ridge, Camberley, GU15 2AD. Light refreshments will be served at 9pm after the debate.
