Former BBC director general Greg Dyke is to spend an evening talking about his life in aid of Young Norwood.

The event, organised by Young Norwood's City Slickers committee takes place on 1 February at London law firm Allen and Overy and costs £25.

Getting Mr Dyke is a real coup for the committee who have spent over two years trying to secure him as a guest with member Adele Freeman finalising a confirmation from Mr Dyke.

Mr Dyke will be "in conversation" with another former BBC employee, journalist Jon Silverman.

“We are thrilled to have someone of the calibre of Greg Dyke sharing his thoughts with us.  His vast levels of experience in broadcasting, and history of working at some of the world’s leading television broadcasters, will make for a very interesting and entertaining evening," said Stephanie Gold, Young Norwood Events Coordinator
