Palace Cinema Como Centre - Film and Luncheon Event

 Greed tells the story of self-made British billionaire Sir Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan), whose retail empire is in crisis. For 30 years he has ruled the world of retail fashion – bringing the high street to the catwalk and the catwalk to the high street – but after a damaging public inquiry, his image is tarnished. To save his reputation, he decides to bounce back with a highly publicised and extravagant party celebrating his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. A satire on the grotesque inequality of wealth in the fashion industry, the film sees McCreadie’s rise and fall through the eyes of his biographer, Nick (David Mitchell)

The President and Council are delighted to invite members and guests to take luncheon and be entertained by Beverley Moss with her highly entertaining presentation of

“Buckingham Palace In My Underwear”





beverley moss luncheon

One Saturday morning in 2001 Bev Moss ignored the usual Saturday chores and read the paper instead.  Happy in her job and nearly 60 she still wonders what impulse drove her to read the Employment pages on this very ordinary day. Little did she know it was to be a life changing event.This deviation from the domestic routine led to a decade of exciting travel and adventure including taking visitors on tours of Clarence House, home of the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and meeting interesting people both famous and ordinary.Her message is – don’t let age be a barrier to what you want to do.  Life is out there and wants you to grab it by the throat.  Bev will tell you how she did just this!

Now it is your opportunity to join her for luncheon ……...
