Gyles Brandreth searching for happiness

Worcester Editorial 25th Feb, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

FOLLOWING a sell-out, critically acclaimed run at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival, Gyles Brandreth is set to bring his five-star show, Looking for Happiness, to Huntingdon Hall in Worcester this weekend.

When Gyles set out on his search for the secret to happiness, he started in Las Vegas and ended up in the psychiatrist’s chair.

What he discovered about who gets to be happy and how – plus other useful lessons picked up along the way from Frank Sinatra and Her Majesty The Queen among others – provides the essence of this 100 minutes of hilarious and unexpected stories and practical advice.

Gyles is also releasing The 7 Secrets of Happiness, which is both ‘the book of the show’ and a set of rules that are simple to remember but challenging to achieve.

The happiness theme in the show and the book is the culmination of a journey Gyles has been on for 17 years, since the death of his best friend in 1996 and losing his seat in parliament the following year.

BBC One Show reporter, Radio 4 Just A Minute regular and award-winning raconteur, Gyles has recently appeared on QI, Have I Got News For You and Room 101.

Looking for Happiness is a stand-up show with a difference, and Gyles is hoping that people will regard both the show and his book as genuinely worthwhile investments!

Research proves that happy people live up to ten years longer than unhappy people, so chances are Looking for Happiness won’t just enhance your life: it will extend it!

The show takes place on Saturday (March 1) at 8pm. Tickets cost £17 and are available from the box office on 01905 611427.
