7 December 2018 Christmas lunch

Mike Bushell

Registration from: 11:45am

Lunch: 12:30pm

At Christmas, with the emphasis being more on the entertainment value of our speaker, we welcomed Mike Bushell, who presents the sport on BBC Breakfast, as our guest speaker.

He proved to be a very popular and engaging speaker, attracting an audience of over 100 people and Mike seemed to enjoy his time in Nottingham and at the club too.

As he said: “It was the most wonderful speaking experience ever. It was fantastic to meet such an inspirational group of people – what a group and what a city. I just didn’t want to leave. I have been blown away.”

Mike Bushell


Mike started his career working for local newspapers before joining BBC Radio Solent in Southampton in 1990 and then moved into television on BBC South. In 2006 he started his BBC Breakfast TV show on a Saturday morning with the mission of proving that there is a sport for everyone and showing that no-one should be left out because they feel embarrassed, rubbish or unfit to do sport
