An evening with Ann Widdecombe

The Crichton Foundation is delighted to announce the return to the Dumfries campus of the Right Honourable Ann Widdecombe P.C.

When she came last year, such was the demand for tickets with many people being disappointed, she has most generously offered a return visit on Thursday 25th April at Easterbrook Hall.

Considered a national treasure since her appearances on Strictly Come Dancing, Ann was a Conservative Member of Parliament for 23 years and has subsequently continued her very successful career as a writer and television presenter. She has a fund of wonderful anecdotes and will recount her life story from being the MP for Maidstone through to her recent performances in pantomime.

Born in Bath, she attended school in Singapore and a convent school in Bath before reading Latin at Birmingham University followed by a PPE at Oxford. She became an MP in 1987, is a Privy Councillor and finally left the House of Commons in 2010.

A spokesman for the Crichton Foundation said: “In the midst of her very busy life it is most generous of Anne to offer to return to Dumfries and we are confident that she will be much in demand once again. Tickets are selling well so make sure you book your seat now. All are welcome.”

The talk is on Thursday 25th April 2013 at 7.30pm in the Easterbrook Hall, Crichton Campus, Dumfries DG1 4TA. Tickets cost £15.00 and include a glass of wine. Booking in advance is essential so please contact the Crichton Foundation Tel 01387 702047/702048 or email:
