May 2017 Speaker
Our speaker was Peter Regelous, an East London and Essex man who spent the first part of his life, in office work in London, then having married a theatrical agent decided to change career and became an entertainer at the age of 40.
He gave us a very amusing insight to his second career performing under the name of Peter King, and working in some of the best and worst entertainment venues around the country. He also recalled some of the colourful characters he met during his times on the holiday camp circuit.
After obtaining his Equity card, he quickly moved into films and TV, appearing in The Generation Game, Absolutely Fabulous and many other popular programmes.
He also presented numerous road shows with chef James Martin and antiques expert Hilary Kay. His display of photographs of these many other occasions were available for all to see at the end of his talk.
About 70 members attended, despite there being another event locally in which some of our regular members were involved.
