Each autumn/winter we hold a series of fascinating talks in aid of a local charity. This year's Talk of Wells is in aid of The Wells United Charities. It is group of charities with the common objectives to alleviate poverty since 1912. Whilst very small, WUC has been both giving bursaries to students leaving Alderman Peel High School to embark on 16+ education to help pay for text books & travel as well as supporting the other end of the spectrum by helping local, elderly residents with their fuel bills through the winter months. Amidst a battlefield of scores of worthy charities, The WUC has a very small voice and we have chosen to champion it this year.
Tonight's talk is being given by Helen Atkinson-Wood, Actress & Comedian. Helen has worked with some of the best comedians in the land with roles in The Young Ones, The Comic Strip and Blackadder. Her leading role in Radio Active back in the eighties has recently been reactivated with Angus Deayton and the old team to much hilarity. Now on tour with Radio Active we are delighted she is squeezing us in!
So, join us on specific Mondays through the Autumn and Winter when a special menu of two courses and a glass of wine will be served for £22.00. We will donate £5.00 to the fund for every person eating. Come and enjoy talks from the men and women who will talk with passion about their lives and adventures.
