TOPPING & COMPANY BOOK EVENT - GYLES BRANDRETH

24 October 2019 7:30pm

Topping & Company Book events provide rich illumination into an author's work and help deepen the experience of reading. They are lively experiences with the emphasis on direct communication between author and audience. The talks usually last about an hour, followed by questions, and then there is an opportunity to meet the speaker and have a book signed.

Gyles has been a theatre producer, politician, journalist, author and publisher as well as TV presenter and radio star in a career which has spanned five decades. He is known equally for his record number of appearances on TV's Countdown, for his improvising wit on Radio's Just a Minute and his love of jumpers and teddy bears. In addition, his time as MP for the City of Chester inspired an acclaimed, and still relevant, account of Westminster. Now Gyles has produced Dancing by the Light of the Moon, a celebration of the finest uses of our English language from the classics, Auden, Wilde, Shakespeare to our all-time favourites, Milligan, McGough and Armitage, to even our most modern works by Rupi Kaur. There can be few more loved characters around than Gyles Brandreth, and we are over the moon to welcome him to Ely!
