      Gyles Brandreth - 'Dancing By The Light Of The Moon'

      "Dancing By The Light Of The Moon" is Gyles Brandreth's latest book to be launched this September.  All about the power, value and fun of learning poetry by heart – and how learning poetry by heart can help stave off dementia! Gyles's talk will be his usual mix of funny stories and name-dropping.  From A A Milne to Benjamin Zephaniah, from Billy Bunter (or at least the actor who played him) to Malcolm X (the real thing), from Charles and Camilla to Yul Brynner and Yehudi Menuhin this is an extraordinary alphabet soup of anecdotes and insights from a performer whose five one-man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe have all earned him 5 star reviews and sold-out houses. Gyles Brandreth – best known these days as a reporter on The One Show and a regular on Just A Minute, and the author of the best-selling Have You Eaten Grandma? and the Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries – is looking forward to coming back to Chewton Glen and meeting old friends with new stories. Gyles and his wife Michele will be signing copies of his new book "Dancing By The Light Of The Moon" during the event. 1045     Coffee 1115     Talk by Gyles Brandreth 1230     Pre lunch drink/book sales and signing 1300     3 course lunch 1500     Close Non residential price £75 to include; Arrival coffee, talk by Gyles Brandreth, three course lunch with coffee and your choice of a glass of red or white wine with lunch.
