A walk on the wild side with Gyles Brandreth

21 08 2008

A Walk on the Wilde Side: Gyles Brandreth presents on Sunday, 5th October 2008 at 11.30am – Waterstones Bookshop, Piccadilly, London

After enjoying this wonderful walk, devised and led by Gyles Brandreth, author of ‘Oscar Wilde and the Candlelight Murders’ etc., Diana Barimore and Lynne Dubin decided to invite him to offer this walk to lipreaders who may not have heard the promotion for this walk on LBC radio.

He was delighted to be asked to offer this walk to their clients and students and so they have arranged with Waterstone’s Bookshop, the original presenters of the walk, to offer a short introductory talk, the walk and an epilogue – and a book signing for those who would like it!

This event will take place at Waterstones bookshop in Piccadilly on Sunday morning the 5th October at 11.30am. The walk itself will last approx. one hour and start and finish at the same bookshop.

There will be SSE and Lipspeaking services offered for the entire event.

The events room at Waterstones bookshop, where they will meet before and after the walk, will have a portable loop system installed for hearing aid users.

Waterstones are currently devising a suitable pamphlet with background information, the walk details, £3 voucher and booking arrangements. Tickets must be reserved in advance. There will be twenty places reserved for deaf and hard of hearing people. The cost of this event is £3 per person. There is a maximum of two tickets per person.

This is an exclusive event. Sunday morning has been chosen for the walk to minimise the background street noise.

Gyles Brandreth is a marvellous communicator and anyone joining this walk will be able to see and follow both Gyles and the Language Service Professionals (LSPs).

They hope this will be the first in a quarterly series of exclusive walks and talks built around some of the interesting people and places of London, past and present.

Lynne says the first 20 lipreaders who respond can buy tickets for themselves and one friend. Then she’ll see how many more they can manage. They want everyone to be able to see/hear/lipread/use comm services etc.

The next event is in December and should be good too!!

She has the tickets and pamphlets and will send out booking forms over the weekend of 22 August. You can request tickets by emailing them on DAVIDDOE @ YMAIL.COM and make sure you include your contact details.

The Language Service Professionals organising this are Lynne Dubin and Diana Barimore, CACDP Level 3 Lipspeakers and MRL.
