Thursday 21st March, 2024, Zoom only. A CD will be played of a radio play, ‘Beware of the Old Bull’, performed by Wellington Heath Amateur Dramatic Society. A businessman is appalled at the way certain businesses are abusing the English language, using often meaningless grandiose verbiage. He visits the British Library where he meets some surprising supporters, from the English language itself. The CD is kindly supplied by the author and director, David Withey.
