We are pleased to be able to welcome a new speaker to our schedule.  We had very much hoped to welcome former Emmerdale actress Leah Bracknell as our speaker in the 2.30pm Saturday slot. Unfortunately, due to unavoidable circumstances, Leah will now be unable to come this year.  We wish her well and will hope to have her with us another time.

However, we now have a brilliant replacement, who also has a celebrity connection! Jack Ludlam was for years one of Britain’s best-known ‘paparazzi’ photographers, roaming the streets of London and beyond to ensure the continuation of the co-dependent cycle of celebrity exposure that many famous people actively court. However, along the way, through his own experiences Jack realised that certain truths were being withheld from the public and that there was a darker side to what was happening to the media. In his presentation for us, Truth and The Pararazzi (subtitled The Times They Have a Changed, Bob), the very lively and very frank Jack will share with us the realities of being a paparazzi photographer and of how he came to see what was really going on under the surface…

Find out more about Jack’s presentation on our Speakers Page.

Jack Ludlam will be on from 2.30pm to 3.30pm on Saturday 27th July. Don’t miss him!
