Northern Aldborough Festival: Gyles Brandreth - Word Play

Northern Aldborough Festival: Gyles Brandreth - Word Play

St. Andrew's Church

They say all political careers end in tears. In Gyles Brandreth’s case it’s tears of laughter as the former MP and Government Whip, regular on Just A Minute and longest surviving member of the Countdown team, takes us on a rollicking roller-coaster ride around his amazing world of words. Host of Radio 4’s Wordaholics, a reporter on The One Show, a survivor on QI, Room 101 and Have I Got News for You, Gyles Brandreth has been fascinated by words since he could walk – and talk. In Word Play, with words to make you laugh (and even cry) and stories from his years in politics and entertainment, Gyles is coming to the Northern Aldborough Festival to celebrate a lifetime’s love of language. No hesitation or repetition, but a bit of deviation guaranteed.
