The British Balloon Museum & Library held their AGM and Annual Luncheon on Sunday 29th October 2023 at the Donnington Grove Hotel, Newbury.
Robin Batchelor was our Post Prandial Speaker and told us all about some of the crazy stunts he has got up to whilst flying in various films and TV series and the stars he's doubled for including Pierce Brosnan and Alain Delon . Sometimes hair raising sometimes hilarious.
