Michael Portillo – “Life: A Game of Two Halves”

Date: November 5, 2017

Time: 7:30

Location: Lydney Town Hall

It took Michael Portillo little more than 10 years to get a seat in the Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was a favoured leader of his party and possible future PM. A track record like that suggests to many a privileged friend of the rich and famous . But since leaving the house a decade ago Michael has endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for solid workmanship and creative energy, as found in our great Victorian Railways, and the daily toil of the working man. A historian at heart, he has used a victorian railway guide to take millions of viewers on a historical voyage of discovery throughout the UK, Ireland, the USA and Europe. Listen to his extraordinary story, told with a light almost “stand up” touch, and then feel free to question him about it.

Doors will open at Lydney Town Hall at 18:30, with the talk commencing at 19:30.

Admission tickets are available at £17.50, with a special rate for members of the Dean Forest Railway Society of £15.50 (please call on 01594 845840 to take advantage of this reduced price ticket).

Stuff ’em an’ kip ’em Safe

Date: November 11, 2017

Time: Doors Open 6:30pm

Location: Lydney Town Hall

There is no more room at the graveyards for our loved ones. The butchers are closing down all over the UK. A retired butcher had an idea of a business by stuffing the bodies of the loved ones so they could be kept at home or kept in their favourite place.
This proved popular so decided to franchise this as a business, from butcher to entrepreneur, making ex-butchers millionaires, but fashions change.

Their quintessentially West Country cover of Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Ruby’ has been a massive show favourite of late, as well as their hilarious hip hop version of the ubiquitous hit ‘Combine Harvester’.
