BROADCASTER and former Tory MP Gyles Brandreth will address the district's business leaders.

He has been unveiled as guest speaker at this year's Bradford Chamber of Commerce annual dinner, in November.

Mr Brandreth is a familiar face on television, appearing in programmes ranging from The One Show to Countdown.

Chamber president, Nick Garthwaite, said: "We have taken huge strides this year improving on our already-excellent engagement with the business community.

"From the employment land report to the upcoming Bradford Manufacturing Week, we have worked closely with key figures in leading organisations to help connect support and represent the best of Bradford district.

"Support such as that from the dinner's sponsors Business Enterprise Fund, Sovereign Health Care, TL Dallas and Christeyns is crucial to the success of the work the chamber does in the community.

"With that support and Gyles' unique brand of presenting, this year's annual dinner promises to be an excellent celebration of the work done in the city region over the course of the year."

The dinner takes place at the Midland Hotel in Bradford on November 22.
