As a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Brian’s credits are luminous and prestigious. Claudius in Hamlet; Maxim Gorky in State of Revolution, and famously, Baron Bomburst in Chitty Chitty, Bang, Bang at the London Palladium.

Not only a theatre stalwart, but a veteran of TV as well, Brian has starred in I, Claudius; The Three Musketeers, and Aliens V Wizards for the BBC, amongst numerous other shows. He has also hosted Have I Got News for You, and played The Narrator in a Tour of Prokofiev’s Peter & The Wolf.

On the big screen he starred opposite Katherine Hepburn, Irene Papas and Vanessa Redgrave in Talthybius; played Vultan in Flash Gordon and Lord Locksley in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner.

Brian has published nine books including Nothing’s Impossible and Blessed Everest, which was born from his love of mountaineering and his insatiable desire to stand on ‘the top of the world'. He has climbed Everest and reached a height of 28,000 feet – the highest a man of his age has achieved without oxygen.

Brian has also completed a trek to the North Pole, an expedition to The Lost World in Venezuela, a climb to the summit of Mount Ararat in Turkey at 17,000 feet and has climbed Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia. There is no stopping Brian’s adventurous side, next on his agenda is to travel into space.  

Entertaining and eloquent, Brian is the ideal speaker to share his amusing stories with an after-dinner audience.
