Some of you will know Doris, who is our Aston Martin DB2. Well, she's currently being serviced and made ready for action. Then she'll be out and about again ...
Doris the Aston Martin DB2 will be out and about this summer.
She was built at Newport Pagnell in 1956, and they only made 199 of them, so she's quite a rare beast. Like many of the vintage of 1956, she does need some love and attention to keep her going well.
"She's 4 years older than me, and you should
see my knees these days."
She is available for static displays and will be seen on some stands run by Michael Graham and Co, Estate Agents, where she brings in a great deal of interest as people turn up, take photo's of her, and this gets the name of Michael Graham around the social media. We don't do weddings as the insurance hampers us on that, but for static shows, we're happy to come along.
"Would you like to know more?"
If you'd like to find out more about Doris the Aston Martin DB2 then do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's see how I can help you.
Until next time ...
More about David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
