The Gentlemen’s Breakfast, which takes place in Durham Market Hall on the third Wednesday of every month, will soon be welcoming a very special speaker. The Bishop of Durham, the Right Reverend Paul Butler, will be attending the breakfast on January Wednesday 18th.
The bishop will be speaking to the group and answering their questions before sitting down to enjoy a cooked breakfast. The bishop will be the special guest of Durham Markets, Café Cenno and Age UK County Durham.
The monthly Gentlemen’s Breakfast is organised by Age UK County Durham as part of its ‘Come Eat Together’ scheme. The breakfast, which includes a full cooked English breakfast with toast and tea or coffee, is open to all men aged 50 and over. Each Gents’ Breakfast is addressed by an invited speaker.
Colin Wilkes, managing director of Durham Markets – the company which owns the Market Hall and organises other markets in Durham – said, “We’ve managed to bring in speakers from all walks of life.”
“These fascinating speakers, combined with the great company and a hearty breakfast, make this a really popular monthly get-together.”
“We’re all really looking forward to hearing the Bishop of Durham in such an intimate and relaxed setting.”
The number of places available for the Gents’ Breakfast are limited and the breakfast planned for the 18th is expected to be booked out earlier than usual. Anybody wishing to reserve a place can call Age UK County Durham on 0191 374 6577 or send an e-mail to [email protected].
Durham Markets said, “New attendees are always welcome at the breakfast events. Why not make it your New Year pledge to yourself to come along and see what it’s all about?”
The Right Reverend Paul Butler has been the Bishop of Durham since January 2014. He was previously the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham. During his ministry, Bishop Paul has demonstrated a commitment to issues affecting children and young people, tackling poverty and promoting church growth.
