Gyles Brandreth – raconteur, former MP, One Show reporter, Just A Minute star, and author of the best-selling word-lover’s companion, Have you eaten, Grandma? – has a passion for poetry. His brilliant new book – Dancing by the light of the moon – is both a celebration of the best-loved poems in the English language and a unique guide to the value and power of learning poetry by heart. With the secrets of how to improve your memory (whatever your age) and poetry that’s by turns funny, sad, and moving, Dancing by the light of the moon is a book designed to lift your spirits and change your life.
There can be few more loved characters around than Gyles Brandreth. With his usual mix of funny stories, anecdotes and insights this should be a hugely entertaining evening. We’re delighted to welcome Gyles to Oswestry!
Tickets: £15 (Includes a signed copy of Dancing by the Light of the Moon). Tickets available from the bookshop or purchase online (with booking fee)
