The Talk of Wells - Helen Atkinson-Wood

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.

We don't have a date for this talk yet but Helen Atkinson-Wood, actress and comedian, will be coming to regale us with amazing stories of working with some of the best comedians in the world, just as soon as she can squeeze us in between dates of her tour of Radio Active with Angus Deayton and Geoffrey Perkins. Well known for her appearances in The Comic Strip, Blackadder, The Young Ones, Radio Active, to name but some of her successes - I am sure she has some very entertaining tales!

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.
