Ticket price

Newspaper editor Geordie Greig recounts the extraordinary and sometimes shocking tales told to him by his friend, the artist Lucian Freud. Greig was among a group of friends who regularly met Freud for breakfast over a ten-year period. Greig recalls Freud’s stories of death threats, escaping the Nazis , falling out with his brother Clement, hating his mother, escaping the Krays and painting the Queen. And he recounts how Freud spoke candidly about dancing with Garbo and painting Kate Moss naked. Greig has also spoken to those close to Freud, including his many girlfriends, models, dealers and bookmakers, to provide an intimate portrait of one of the great British artists as a young and old man.

Greig is editor of the Mail on Sunday and a former editor of the London Evening Standard and of Tatler. He has also written a book, The Kingmaker, about his grandfather’s friendship with King George V.
