But this isn't 2019, when we were freely allowed to dance until dawn. This is 1957.
• Chef and writer Yotam Ottolenghi has become a hugely influential voice on what we eat and how we cook. He’ll be discussing the role food has played in keeping us sane this year and how to take our own cooking to the next level.
• Dance music mainstay Roísín Murphy will give an acoustic performance of three tracks from her new album, Roísín Machine, as well as discussing what’s kept a performer like her going during lockdown and how she keeps moving forward.
• Actor and musician Riz Ahmed will be discussing an issue more relevant than ever – identity – and how his own background as a British Muslim has shaped his life and career.
• Music producer Fraser T Smith has shaped the sound of some of the UK’s most successful artists including Gorillaz and Stormzy. This year he released his debut album under his Future Utopia moniker, which features the likes of Kano, Dave and Idris Elba.
