The National Bed Federation is pleased to announce the return of broadcaster, Gyles Brandreth, as its host for the 2015 Bed Show Gala Dinner and awards ceremony, which this year takes place on the night of the 22nd September at the Telford International Centre.
Having received a rapturous reception as the host of the Gala Dinner in 2012 and 2013, Gyles is no stranger to the bed industry and will once again be welcoming and entertaining guests as well as presenting this year’s industry awards.
Now a regular on The One Show and Radio 4 institution Just A Minute, Gyles is best known for being a journalist, an author and a broadcaster. As the Sunday Telegraph Review's editor-at-large and a journalist for many years, Gyles has interviewed a wealth of celebrities and world leaders. Many of these meetings were documented in Brief Encounters: Meetings with Remarkable People, a book described by Michael Parkinson as 'quite superb'. Gyles's vast oeuvre also takes in books on royalty (Charles and Camilla, Philip and Elizabeth), rhetoric (You Talkin' to Me?), The Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries, 7 Secrets of Happiness and numerous volumes of diaries as well as compilations of party games, jokes, brainteasers and quotations.
Gyles’ unique career has also seen him in the role as Baron Hardup in Cinderella, MP for the City of Chester and Lord Commissioner of the Treasury. He’s also appeared in Countdown's Dictionary Corner more than any other guest, and made appearances on everything from Dr Who to The IT Crowd to The Gadget Show. In 2014 Gyles also toured the country with his one man show Looking for Happiness.
