GYLES BRANDRETH: A SENSE OF PLACE

Sunday 29 April: Talk with wit, wisdom… and hilarious name-dropping

 

On Sunday 29 April at 2.00 pm, as part of Weaver Words, Frodsham Literature Festival.  You can book through the website -  www.weaverwords.org.uk - or call the box office: 0333 666 3366.

They say all political careers end in tears.  In Gyles Brandreth’s case it’s tears of laughter as the actor, author, BBC One Show reporter, former MP and government whip comes to Frodsham with stories of some of the places that have meant most to him – from the Library of the House of Commons to sitting in the psychiatrist’s chair with Dr Anthony Clare. This is Brandreth unleashed on the unlikely places he’s known and why they’re special to him – from Desmond Tutu’s sitting room to the Royal Box at Royal Variety Performance. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers an afternoon of wit, wisdom, anecdote and hilarious name–dropping.
