Grayson Perry is a compassionate and thought-provoking filmmaker, as comfortable exploring the meaning of art, as interviewing wrestlers and miners on the theme of masculinity. Describing himself as Britain's second best-known transvestite, the Turner Prize-winning artist is a Royal Academician and currently, Chancellor of the University of the Arts, London.

Best known for his ceramics, Grayson is also an award-winning documentary maker, with his films garnering two BAFTAs and two Grierson Awards. They include: Why Men Wear Frocks, Grayson Perry: Born Risky, Grayson Perry's Dream House and last year's All Man for Channel 4.

With filmmaking inspiring and being inspired by his art, The Vanity of Small Differences, Grayson's monumental suite of tapestries, was chronicled in his series In The Best Possible Taste and Grayson Perry: Who Are You?, was accompanied by a presentation of works at the National Portrait Gallery, London.

Join Grayson and Jay for a look at his work both on and off-screen, hear what inspires him and what's next in his documentary diary.

Tickets are available now from

Presented by The Grierson Trust and produced by Channel 4.
