My dinner party guest list with special guest…

I do feel a bit like I’m casting for something like Big Brother by writing this post!

A good while ago Catherine over at NotDressedAsLamb posted up her fantasy dinner party guests…

It’s been in my ‘posts to write’ for too long now, so here are my top fantasy dinner party guests.  I can’t remember if there are any rules but for the purpose of my posts, there are none!  Dead or alive, funny or serious, poet or singer, there’s no dress code…  Off the top of my head, I would invite:

  • Jane Austen – I’ve studied Austen, I love Pride and Prejudice.  I wrote my dissertation on the adaptation of P&P for the BBC (the Andrew Davis version).  She doesn’t even have to RSVP, I would just love her to be there!  She may be quite funny after a few drinks…
  • But not a funny as Alan Carr.  I haven’t seen many of his stand-up acts but recently saw the Great Ormond Street Comedy Gala which he hosted.  There are too many comedians to choose from and he sprang immediately to mind.
  • Russell Brand – for a bit of controversy!  He’d be good at filling the awkward gaps and he’d be good at creating them too!  Probably in equal measure.
  • Chris Evans – the broadcaster and radio 1 DJ.  I listen to his radio show most days and I’d like to see what he was like without his team around to compliment him.  (In the teamworking sense of the word.)
  • Terry Wogan – He’s a legend.  Everyone’s got to have a legend at their dinner party!
  • Dalai Lama – for his words of wisdom and his calmness…
  • and you, of course 😉


That seems like a nice little crowd…

But who’s on your guest list Morgan , Mainie and Michelle ?

Aby , Amy and Franca ?…


What questions would you ask and to whom?  I’d love to know!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere

Thanks 🙂

  1. Love the idea of Jane Austin and Russel Brand in the same room! He’s my “shouldn’t but woulda”, no idea why, I don’t even find him that attractive but somehow he is??! Wonder what the topics would be? Oh to be a fly on the wall….#KCACOLS

  2. Hi Carol, I bet Terry Wogan would have made an excellent dinner party guest. And I’d be save judgement until afterwards to give Alan Carr and Russell Brand a fair chance. I’m not sure what I would ask any of them, questions would pop into my mind as we ate.

    I’m not a fan of Jane Austin, but that’s not to say she wouldn’t make an interesting dinner guest and I’d probably have more questions to ask her. Like, how would she rewrite some of her classic to make them fit in with today’s society?

    I’d love to have David Attenborough and Terry Wogan at a dinner party, I bet they would chat!

  3. I don’t think you would forget that evening in a hurry – fab mix of guests! And the one liners would be epic. I’ll have to give this tag a go sometime. 🙂

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday!

  4. Hi there. Already talked about fantasy dinner parties with Mainie over at and your guest list is cool too.

    If I could have a dinner party with people who have already gone to the great beyond. There are a certain number of guys I would definitely invite, which probably would start a string of dinner parties, but the first would definitely include:

    David Bowie, Heath Ledger, H G Wells, winston Churchill & Leonardo DaVinci
