PENGUIN LIVE: Gyles Brandreth

12 October 2022 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 pm

Just A Minute regular, QI veteran and Celebrity Gogglebox star Gyles Brandreth will be live on stage at Wariwck Arts Centre with stories from his unlikely life in politics, entertainment and TV and with the inside story on his latest book: A History of Britain in Just A Minute.

Tickets available here

This event won’t be just a minute – it’ll be 75 fun-filled minutes of hilarious name-dropping, outrageous anecdotes and unexpected revelations. A History of Britain in Just A Minute does what it says on the cover: it’s a riotously addictive romp through British history with a difference.

This isn’t history as they taught it at school: this is history in just a minute! From Stonehenge and Boudicca to Peppa Pig and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Gyles covers a thousand years of our island story in side-splitting 60-second instalments, without hesitation, repetition, or deviation.

On stage, the jumper-wearing ex-MP, This Morning agony uncle, and denizen of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner, will tell stories & take audience questions. This promises to be a laughter-packed roller-coaster ride around the history of Gyles Brandreth, the history of Just A Minute and A History of Britain in Just A Minute. Don’t miss out on your exclusive chance to see Gyles live at this riotous event with Penguin Live!
