Followed by a talk on Brighton’s tramway

 OUR guest speaker, Ian Gledhill, will give a talk on Brighton's tramways, telling the story of the form of transport that once served Brighton but not Hove. Brighton had the second largest tram system in Sussex, and was the last town in the world still to build open-topped trams.

 Ian is a long-term North Laine resident, having moved to Over Street in 1974. He has had a varied career, from designing underground railways as an engineer for London Transport to appearing in pantomime with Julian Clary. He has also worked in travel and tourism, music publishing, television and mainly theatre, especially opera, where he has been a director, set designer and opera translator. 

 Outside the theatre, one main interest is rail transport, both trams and trains. He is chair of the Volk's Electric Railway Association
