Amidst all the talk of economic doom and gloom, we are delighted to invite you to a Christmas Speakers Breakfast with three of the most entertaining characters on the circuit – Gyles Brandreth, Jay Rayner and Gerald Scarfe.

Gyles has played Baron Hardup in Cinderella, represented the good people of Chester and counter-signed the biggest cheque in British history, with Her Majesty The Queen. Arguably the biggest name-dropper in the land, he is also a consummate after dinner speaker and awards host.

Alongside his role as Masterchef judge and One Show regular, Jay is a wonderfully straight talking restaurant critic who enjoys being mistaken for Marco Pierre White. He has a trolley full of stories of dining hell, including examples of comically poor customer service – and he may also offer some invaluable tips for Christmas dinner.

Gerald is the celebrated Sunday Times cartoonist. His often outrageous portraits have made being ‘savaged by Scarfe’ a rite of passage for the big beasts of Westminster. Illustrating his speech with film clips and fantastic artwork, he asks “What exactly is the correct form of address to someone you’ve just depicted as a warthog?”
