Two weeks tonight (gosh it's come around quickly!) around 200 members and guests will be packed into Maidstone's newly refurbished Hazlitt Theatre for our eagerly anticipated "An Evening with Baroness Trumpington".
She will be interviewed on stage by Tonbridge & Malling's Parliamentary Candidate, Tom Tugendhat, about her extraordinary life; from a Land Girl on Lloyd George's family farm, a Code Breaker at Bletchley Park, part of the Clivedon Set through her time as Lord Mayor of Cambridge then Minister in the Thatcher and Major Governments. I suspect Tom might even dare ask about her now famous "two finger salute" to Lord King in the House of Lords, captured on live TV, after he referred to her age during a debate.
Part of the show will be dedicated to the music and songs which have played an important part in her life, and I have today been sorting out the downloads, copywrite and relevant PRS licences to play them in public.
Tomorrow Jon and I are meeting with the theatre's technical people to work out stage management, lighting, sound and production! All very exciting as it's something we have never done before - and that in itself is a treat to be doing something for the first time.
We do still have tickets available (just £10 donation per person) and we have a special deal for neighbouring Associations who might like to send a minimum of ten people; they can bulk purchase tickets at £2 each and resell them for £10, keeping the profit locally. Please email the office for details; email@example.com
If you haven't yet booked - this is your last chance. A wonderful opportunity to hear and meet this truly remarkable lady.
