Gyles and Nicholas met exactly 50 years ago (at a party hosted by Fanny Craddock!) and they are coming to Richmond to celebrate half a century of friendship with varied tales from their different careers - in Nicholas’s case on stage and screen; in Gyles’s case at Westminster and in those colourful jumpers. They will also tell the story of the night when together they both broke the record for making the longest-ever after dinner speech. That lasted 11 hours! This show won't – but it will include plenty of laughter and name-dropping, and some of their favourite humorous poetry, from the likes of Edward Lear and Ronnie Barker.
Plus: post-show meet-and-greet while Nicholas signs copies of his book, Welcome to Just A Minute, and Gyles signs copies of his new anthology of poems to learn by heart, Dancing by the Light of the Moon.
