Some of the 384 members asked how we managed to get Gyles Brandrith to come to out U3A
It was great to see the URC so full today and thank you to the members that arrived early so that we were able to avoid a big crush at the booking in.
Well for those that did turn out what a treat we had, Gyles made name dropping into an art with the many anecdotes about the big names that he was acquainted with. He is so natural and very funny and it was just like listening to an old friend telling you what they had been up to.
A little hitch with the microphone didn’t phase Gyles and showed the consummate professional that he is as he just carried on.
It was unfortunate that time was limited as I and many others could have listened to him for a lot longer, thank you Gyles for most enjoyable afternoon.
