Author, raconteur, MP, arctophile and sartorial disaster zone: at one time or another, Gyles Brandreth has been all of these things and more. From brightening up the Good Morning Britain sofa with a seemingly endless collection of crazy knitted jumpers in the 1980s, to serving as a Conservative whip in John Major's government and starring in his own award-winning musical revue in London’s West End, this man has seemingly done it all. He is a former Monopoly champion, has a couple of books under his belt and has even set the record for the longest after dinner speech three times - the second attempt lasted some twelve-and-a-half hours, just in time for breakfast! Fortunately, the broadcaster will not be attempting to set any records during An Audience With Gyles Brandreth, presented by the Ammanford And District Arts Club. And he’ll not be wearing any of his famous gaudy knits, either, since most were given away to charity when he entered politics, but you can be sure of plenty of hilarious anecdotes, satirical social commentary and interesting insights of a life filled with memorable moments at every turn.
