albert club lunch and a talk about the marquess of anglesey!

The nice folks at the Albert Club are piloting The Albert Lunch Club which will involve a great three course lunch created by the in-house chef, Boz Berry.  After this, while sipping coffee or finishing their wine, diners will be entertained by a first class speaker.

The first lunch will be on Wednesday May 1st.  The club will open at 12.30pm and lunch will be served at 1pm.  The speaker is Viv Gardner, MU Emeritus Professor in Drama who is now writing a book on the 5th Marquess of Anglesey (1875-1905).  Viv will take us through his bizarre idiosyncracies, squanderous lifestyle and eventual demise and assures us that he was a fascinating character.

The cost will be £22 per person. To buy a ticket, call into the club or book online You will be charged a £2 booking fee so it’s wiser to visit the club if you can.

Albert members and non members most welcome and anyone coming on their own will be made to feel most welcome.
