After taking 2015’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm, Gyles Brandreth is on a 42-date UK tour of his brand new show Word Power! including a show at The Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds on Sunday, June 26 at 7.30pm.
Join the wit and word-meister, former MP and star of Just A Minute, The One Show, QI, Have I Got News For You and Room 101, on an uproarious magic carpet ride around the world of words.
Gyles is a word fanatic. Founder of the National Scrabble Championships and President of the Association of British Scrabble Players, Gyles has appeared on every word-based radio and TV game show and is a regular visitor to Countdown’s ‘Dictionary Corner’.

He has won and been nominated for awards, as a public speaker, novelist, children’s writer, broadcaster (Sony and Royal Television Society), political diarist (Channel Four), journalist (British Press Awards), theatre producer (Olivier), and businessman (British Tourist Authority Come to Britain Trophy). He has featured on This Is Your Life and Desert Island Discs and is a former chairman and now vice-president of the National Playing Fields Association.
