Gala dinner

Join us for a black tie gala dinner where actor John Lyons, best known for playing Sir David Jason's long suffering sidekick D.S. George Toolan in 'A Touch of Frost', will be the after dinner speaker. Lyon's career has been both long and varied, covering West End musicals and straights plays.
