Next Thursday JULIE SUMMERS, the grand-daughter of Colonel Philip Toosey, will tell the true story of The Bridge over the River Kwai. Her outstanding biography of her grandfather is a necessary corrective to the altered and incomplete character portrayed by Alec Guinness in the film "The Bridge over the River Kwai". Julie describes in enthralling detail the life of a man who served the Far Eastern prisoners of war right up until his death in 1975, and whose conduct marked him out as a true British hero.
Tickets £6.00 from Caroline Thewles (tel: 01743 353424) or on the door.
