Margaret Thatcher Signed Books and Champagne With Iain Dale


iain dale

LBC’s very own Iain Dale has written or edited more than twenty books including his most recent Memories of Margaret Thatcher: A Portrait, By Those Who Knew Her Best’.

To commemorate the sad passing of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and to celebrate the incomparable career of this colossus of British and global politics, Memories of Margaret Thatcher brings together personal reminiscences and anecdotes from more than a hundred political figures. This book is a true one-off as Iain has not only signed your copy but the book also includes a personally signed Margaret Thatcher bookplate - one of only ten copies to contain a personal signature from The Iron Lady. 

London Eye Iain Dale, one of Britain’s leading political commentators and bloggers, will be hosting a Champagne reception for you and 14 friends on the EDF Energy London Eye.

After all who better to chat about the book and the Thatcher era than someone who knew her well. Iain’s a formal financial journalist with Lloyds List, and was a political lobbyist before setting up his own political bookselling and publishing company so he will be able to give you a unique insight into Westminster and the Thatcher reign.

You and your guests will feel like true VIPs on the EDF Energy London Eye as you experience priority boarding and enjoy the unrivalled views over London, the Houses of Parliament, all whilst sipping on delicious Pommery Champagne served in your own private capsule for the 30 minute trip.

But that's not all - the lucky winner of this prize will also receive another fantastic memento - a signed copy of the 1975 book 'Margaret Thatcher: A Personal and Poltical Biography'. Two Margaret Thatcher signatures in one prize - a must for any admirer of our only female Prime Minister to date.  

So get bidding now for a truly one off auction prize!
