Great Political Resignations

In aid of ACTnow - Amberley Church Tower Appeal

This promises to be a highly entertaining talk by Theo Barclay.  Theo, a barrister based in London who lived in Amberley as a boy, started writing about politics in 2010 and has written extensively about the blurred line between politics and law.

His first book Fighters and Quitters: Great Political Resignations charts the scandals and controversies that obliterated dreams of high office: from the ex-minister who faked his death in the 1970s, to Geoffrey Howe’s plot to topple Margaret Thatcher in the 1990s, Chris Huhne’s journey from despatch box to jail cell in 2013 and up to Damian Green’s demise in the ‘Pestminster’ furore of 2017. Then there are the sex and spy scandals that heralded doom, from peers busted in bed with prostitutes, to MPs caught cavorting in public parks and, of course, the infamous Profumo affair.

Who jumped and who was pushed? Who battled to keep their job and who collapsed at the first hint of pressure? Who returned, Lazarus-like, for a second act? From humiliating surrenders to principled departures, Fighters and Quitters lifts the lid on the lives of the politicians who fell on their swords.

Friday October 26th at 7pm, in the church.

Tickets are £10, with a glass of fizz or wine included in the price, and will be available from Valerie Galbraith, Simon's Lee (01798 839006) from Wednesday 9 October.

Citi Choir & Vocal Fusion

In aid of ACTnow - Amberley Church Tower Appeal

Another date to keep free: Sunday 2 December 2018, at 4pm, in the church.  An opportunity to hear a combination of award-winning barbershop choir, Vocal Fusion, and the Citi Choir, finalists in Gareth Malone's BBC TV series The Choir: Sing While You Work, this promises to be a not-to-be-missed event.  Tickets, £12, will be available from 3 November, from Jeff Feakins, Little Court (01798 831538), from Valerie Galbraith, Simon's Lee (01798 839006) and online here.
