Dinner time

  • Comment

The final event of Price week was a party in Denys Lasdun's Royal College of Physicians building in Regent's Park.

Highlights included ex-TUC general secretary Norman Willis singing one of CP's favourite songs, 'I'm the man, the very fat man, that waters the workers' beer'; Tom King on CP's architectural postcards; Don Gray on the friendship of CP, David Allford and Frank Newby; John Lyall on the CP cricket team; Paul Hyett's shortest speech ever (encapsulating CP's quirkiness and qualities); and best of all Eleanor Bron's performance of a Constant Lambert setting to a Russian fable about life and housing; and her correction to the obituary which said she and Cedric had met as a result of his interest in the theatre. In reality, he thought about the theatre as 'a lot of people facing the same way looking at a foregone conclusion'! A marvellous send-off.
