Tony Benn gets standing ovation

As part of our Audience With week of talks, Tony Benn - one of the greatest politicians and orators of our time - appeared at the theatre on Wednesday night. He did not disappoint the sold out crowd and at 83 years old still managed to bring the audience to its feet in appreciation. He then signed books and chatted to the crowd in our packed foyer. I had the privilege of accompanying him to and from the theatre and it is an experience I will never forget. An absolute gentleman.
