Friends for many years John and Chris have lots to talk about. As John says; “Chris is very good at making conversation”… so join them for a pre-recorded chat at the museum where they will talk about their careers, their influences and why John is never seen without his trusty stopwatch.
The talk will be followed by a live Q&A with John.
