Poet, broadcaster and after-dinner raconteur Ian McMillan will once again be the guest speaker and entertainer at the Reading Matters’ fundraising dinner at the Midland Hotel in Bradford on March 7, starting at 7.30pm.

The Bradford charity, which aims to improve reading skills and therefore change lives, is putting on a choice of three-course meals, coffee and live music.

Tickets costs £40 per head – £5 cheaper than last year. They may be obtained from readingmatters.org.uk/events or by calling (01274) 692219.
