“Oprah Winfrey touched my elbow….”

Please come and join us for another in our series of occasional talks. We are delighted to welcome ex showbiz journalist Graham Keal who has been interviewing TV celebrities for over 30 years. His interviews and columns have been published everywhere from The Daily Telegraph to My Weekly, from TV Times to The Sun, from The Guardian to The Daily Record. Graham has also entertained in folk clubs, compered concerts, and auditioned for Opportunity Knocks.

Why was Sir David Attenborough making eyes at him? What made Jimmy Tarbuck such a pain – and why did Oprah touch Graham’s elbow? Come along to Maplebeck Village Hall and find out

The talk starts at 7.30pm and there will be an opportunity to chat to Graham over light refreshments (included in the price) after the presentation. Tickets £3, pay on the door.
