The very definition of larger than life. With his booming voice,
huge frame and electric personality, Brian has been entertaining
us for nearly 60 years. He burst onto the scene in TV's Z-Cars
and has enjoyed a career that has included a stint in the original
production of Cats, works by Shakespeare, Peppa Pig - and, of
course, Flash Gordon. From growing up as the son of a miner in
Goldthorpe to nearly causing an international incident when
meeting the Emperor of Japan, via falling for Katherine Hephurn
and winning round George Lucas for a part in Star Wars, Brian will
look back on an action-packed life in his inimitable, boisterous
style. Oh, and he also sparred with Mohmammed Ali, attempted
to climb Everest three times and became the oldest man to trek
to the magnetic North Pole. A real national treasure comes to
the Kenton stage to talk about his aptly named memoir, Absolute
Pandemonium. Henley's Alive!
This event will be hosted by The Bell Bookshop.
