Retired politician Sir Nicholas Winterton will be giving an insight into Westminster life at a charity lunch in Wilmslow next month.
The former Conservative MP for Macclesfield is the guest speaker at the annual lunch and Christmas Fayre of the Wilmslow Support Group for East Cheshire Hospice at the Deanswater Hotel on Thursday, 9th November.
Sir Nicholas will be discussing The Wintertons Unmuzzled, a book written by his daughter Sarah Winterton which charts the political life of her parents.
