Friday October 14th at 6.30pm
Friends of Prescott is delighted to host a social event with Robert Llewellyn, who as many will know starred in Red Dwarf as Kryten. He also presented TV programmes like Scrapheap Challenge, How Do They Do It, Hollywood Science, and Top Trumps. Robert (now 66) admits he’s quite old and a bit frayed around the edges but claims he’s still functioning adequately!
Robert has agreed to talk on the subject of “Electric Cars Are Rubbish. Aren't they?” in the Clubhouse at Prescott. The event includes a two course supper and the talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
Robert had a life changing experience in 2001 when he had a ride in a very fast electric car in California. Throughout his TV career he has been exposed to many cutting edge innovations in the transportation sector through his involvement with science and engineering. He is fascinated by the development of electric vehicles with the challenges such disruptive technology can have.
So in 2010 he started the Fully Charged Show on YouTube. The show covers electric vehicles including cars, trucks and regularly gets 1 million views a week and is popular around the world. Over the last 12 years he has driven over hundreds of thousands of miles in electric cars and so far hasn’t run out on the side of the road and burst into tears.
It promises to be a very entertaining, interesting and informative evening.
Tickets are available at £30 per person, dinner included. Vegetarian options will be available.
The proceeds of the evening will go to Friends of Prescott to continue their work to make improvements for the benefit of all visitors to Prescott.
