The Trust was honoured to have it's own audience at the Cast Theatre on Friday night with the one and only Doncaster born, larger than life and fearless Yorkshireman; friend of royalty; that star of stage, screen and media; that adventurer, explorer, mountaineer, and if all goes well, the first man on Mars; that lover of animals and the environment; that long-standing supporter of many charities, and much more. A polymath extraordinaire!

He also finds time to pursue his great interest in railways, including progress on the Cock O' The North Project.

During his show he applauded the pre-eminent position of Doncaster as a world-renowned railway engineering town with specific references to the Mallard and Cock O' The North.

At the interval the Trust's representatives, David Byrne and Malcolm Frost received a warm welcome from Brian, and he was presented with a locomotive print which was graciously received.

The 2nd half, started with a big advert for the Trust as he waved about our COTN flyer and told the audience to support us! This lasted about 2 minutes.

It was a brilliant evening, full of stories about the many people, places and activities that have been his life, and the many things he wants to do in the future. Those who missed the show need to put it on their bucket list.

He will be back.
