What TV’s on at BAFTA in March? Including Normal People and The Nest

Normal People

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

BAFTA events are coming thick and fast for March now, with not just one but two to add to the previously announced preview of Adult Material. For a bit of variety, one’s in London and the other’s in Glasgow.

Preview: Normal People

Monday, 16 March 2020 – 7:00pm

The May Fair Hotel, Stratton St, Mayfair, London W1J 8LT

A preview of the new BBC drama followed by a Q&A with key cast and crew.

Adapted by Sally Rooney alongside writers Alice Birch and Mark O’Rowe, from Rooney’s novel of the same name, Normal People tracks the tender but complicated relationship of Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell (Paul Mescal), from the end of their school days in small-town west of Ireland to their undergraduate years at Trinity College.

At school, Connell is well liked and popular, while Marianne is lonely, proud and intimidating. When Connell comes to pick up his mother from her cleaning job at Marianne’s house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers – one they are determined to conceal. A year later, they’re both studying in Dublin and Marianne has found her feet in a new social world, leaving Connell hanging at the side lines, shy and uncertain.

Seating will be unallocated. If you have any access requirements, please contact [email protected] as far in advance as possible.
