Group Description

A group inspired by the works of British actor, author and sometime broadcaster Alan Bennett.

Old ladies in white cardigans on a bench at Bridlington. Eating the sandwiches in the car because it's raining. Thermos flasks. The World Of Alan Bennett is a quiet celebration of the ordinary. It's a bit Smiths, It's a bit Belle and Sebastian, It's a bit Keith Waterhouse. It's a lot Alan Bennett. It's a hot water bottle under the blankets in the box bedroom. It's rain on a terraced house. It's your Auntie who has ideas about her station. It's Dinner At Noon. It's grammar school. It's the last bus home. It's a glass of sherry. It's public libraries. It's the best crockery in the back of the cupboard, used once a year.

There aren't any firm rules, but if I think a picture isn't in the spirit of the group i'll have to delete it - sorry.

While Alan Bennett's work has often a very English/Yorkshire theme, submissions are welcome from anywhere in the world, so long as they fit in.

If in doubt, please do post - but consider this, if you have a picture of a pint of lager and a picture of a cup of tea - post the picture of the tea.

Any pictures of Mr Bennett himself are welcome, too!
