Front Row seats for the WI when Alan Titchmarsh recorded his show





Our Trip to The London Studios started with a meal in The Mulberry Bush Pub and a Wander along the Embankment before queuing to go in.   As one of us was partially sighted we were given front row seats and Alan Titchmarsh came along to chat with us - quite a bonus.   We saw two shows with the first going out on the day with live guests being Simon Mayo and Comedian Ed Burns.   



We also had First Aid tips, how to make Chicken broth as a cure for colds and flu (which has been proven) and three other guest had made a business out of their hobbies- Papier Mache animals, Lego figures and Old fashioned sweets (with a taster)
The second show was pre recorded for a later date. Frank Bruno being one guest  with the Olympic Curling Silver medalists bringing along their medals for us to see.
Not looking too happy here,  but full of smiles on our visit.  A stamp collector and an artist who made pictures out of stamps were next on the show,  and finally although all of us volunteered to have a make over,   someone else from the audience was chosen - that's  just the way it goes.

A good day with lots of surprises.
