How exciting! We have a celebrity speaker for our next virtual meeting on 9th June. None other than Christopher Biggins!
Star of radio, TV, stage and screen, Christopher Biggins will talk about his life/career and then answer your questions, what a treat! He’s insisting on coming to visit us in person next year, so I hope we make a good impression! Make sure you pop the date in your diary and get thinking about those questions.
Due to the latest advice from the government on Covid-19, all face-to-face meetings are cancelled until further notice. This includes the main meetings, as well as the small groups and trips. Any questions, please email. firstname.lastname@example.org
