TV and theatre writer Billy Ivory will be presenting this year's Wolfit Lecture.
One of Britain’s leading television and theatre writers, Billy Ivory, will present this year’s annual Wolfit Lecture on Sunday, September 8.
It is a re-arranged date after the writer had to pull out of an appearance earlier this year because of illness.
The Southwell-born writer will be in conversation at Castle House — the offices of Newark and Sherwood District Council — in Newark, from 3pm.
His work includes Common As Muck, Made In Dagenham, Chef, Boon, and A Thing Called Love. He has also written episodes of Coronation Street, Emmerdale and All Creatures Great And Small.
One of his most recent works was a television drama about Torvill And Dean, which was aired on ITV on Christmas Day.
The annual lecture is presented by the Wolfit Endowment Fund in memory of the famous Balderton actor manager Sir Donald Wolfit.
The fund raises money for grants to local drama students.
Tickets cost £12, which includes afternoon tea. They are available from Carolyn Drury on 07970 951827 or Carol Wilkinson on 01636 672295.
