At the moment we are offering MOTHER! Britain's Adventure Girl No.1, an evening with Geoff Meggitt and Tony Adams - the son of the subject of Geoff's latest book Winifred Brown. More details...

Tony has been on the stage and television for over sixty years. Among much else, he’s been directed by Noel Coward, appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company, worked with Ginger Rogers and many other stars, and played Grandpa in the hit Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium in 2004. He’s probably best known for his roles in two TV soap operas: as Dr Neville Bywater in General Hospital and as the racy heart-throb Adam Chance in the legendary Crossroads. He has recently toured with the political thriller Dead Ringer.
