VB2023 gala dinner – world's number one ethical pickpocket

We don't normally reveal the entertainment for the VB conference gala dinner, usually keeping it under wraps until the night itself, but this time it's just too good to keep it to ourselves.

James Freedman has been described as “a master of the deceptive arts” and "the world's number one pickpocket", thanks to a lifelong study of criminology and the psychology of thieves. He has advised the Metropolitan Police and has picked the pockets of the Mayor of London, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Governor of the Bank of England.

At the VB2023 gala dinner he will demonstrate his extraordinary skills and just how easily he can pick a pocket, clone a credit card or hack a phone. We can't wait to see him in action!
