Details of a letter from Roy in Leatherhead, Blue Badge Guide:
‘With such a wealth of material it must have been difficult to know what to include or omit and with the breaks between courses the audience was thus able to discuss the story they had just heard.
Using period costume Graham Pountney gave us extracts from speeches together with Churchill’s feelings about unfolding events. The audience could not help feeling that they had a much closer and unique insight into a man who had walked with, and shaped the history and times of the twentieth century through which we had all lived.
The concept of combining theatre with organized dinner is not new, and in fact goes back to the days of music hall if not before. However, combining a historical or biographical presentation with a relatively small group preparing and enjoying a group meal is both imaginative and has a tremendous potential on a local basis for delighting the many special interest groups found in Britain today'.
