Downsizing: an evening with Tom Watson at Waterstones

Deputy Leader of the Labour Party Tom Watson will be visiting Waterstones in The Galleries on Monday 3 February to share his honest, very frank and inspiring account of how he radically changed the way he ate, lost eight stones and reversed his type 2 diabetes.

The event starts at 7PM.


Downsizing charts how, in his words, Tom Watson went from being a seemingly ill-disciplined, over-indulgent individual who was addicted to sugar and hard-wired to consume more than the Average Joe, into someone who took control of their eating and became fit enough to climb Snowdon.

Tom Watson

Tom Watson has been the MP for West Bromwich East from 2001 until 2019 and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party 2015 – 2019. Following his own radical weight loss and his burgeoning interest in the food systems that fuel obesity in the UK, Tom set up an independent commission that is looking at how government can tackle obesity and stem the rise in type 2 diabetes.

Tom will be in conversation with Bristol 24/7 editor Martin Booth.
