“Thanks for a great talk. From the reactions of your audience it was clear that you very much hit the spot! At a time when audiences are increasingly diverted by Powerpoint presentations it is refreshing to find a speaker who can hold a group enthralled with the spoken word alone. It is something you are able to achieve in spades!
Thank you again for your support of the Bristol National Trust Centre’s Talks programme”.     Dave Moore.
Returning to Bristol NTC on Saturday 16th December 2017 with GEORGE BERNARD SHAW: PLAYING THE CLOWN

Brian’s theatre career started direct from National Service, in 1959, as Trainee Manager at the London Palladium, and has taken him to forty-three different countries including three residencies in the Middle East; eight tours of the Indian sub-continent and two circumnavigations of the globe.
He has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, Sadler’s Wells and London Festival Ballet Companies, Scottish Opera, Nottingham Playhouse and Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop Company.
As he approached retirement he started to ‘branch out’ - directing amateur operatics; writing scripts, and giving Talks. Details of his Talks and Presentations, and of his Scripts, fill the pages of this website.
In amongst all of this he finally found time to write the long-promised autobiography which he called MEANDERINGS: A RIVER AND A LIFE. Again, details can be found towards the back of the website.
