Fantasy Dinner Party with Victoria Lamb

As part of the Witchstruck blog tour, I am really pleased to welcome Victoria Lamb onto the blog. Victoria was more than willing to share her fantasy dinner party so I shall pass you over to her. 
KD Lang. 
KD Lang is a fabulous Canadian singer whose albums I adore. Her voice has incredible range, depth, and subtlety of emotion. It would be great to have such a consummate artist and a fellow Scorpio at my fantasy dinner party
Joss Whedon.
 What can I say? The inspirational creator of brilliantly original TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse etc. I’d like to ask him all those burning questions like ‘Buffy and the Immortal? What was all that about?’ and ‘What would have happened in the cancelled second series of Firefly?’
Severus Snape.
 If I’m allowed historical characters, I figured I can slip a fictional character onto my fantasy invitation list. Courageous, conflicted, intelligent, I’m convinced Snape would exhibit a softer side if plied with a little Muggle wine and some tiramisu.
Eddie Izzard
John Cleese has referred to comedian Eddie Izzard as ‘the Lost Python’. I can’t think of a funnier dinner guest with his marvellous whimsy and physical humour. Bet he’d be a laugh washing up in the kitchen afterwards too.
Emmeline Pankhurst
Once voted amongst the Top 100 Most Influential People of the Twentieth Century, Emmeline Pankhurst is one of the prime reasons women are entitled to sexual equality today. A fiery and determined women, she chained herself to railings with the best of them and led the British Suffragette movement for decades.
What a fabulous dinner party. Thank you Victoria for sharing that with us.

  1. Don't they all look amazing? I'd love to play a post-dinner game of Charades with this gathering!

    Many thanks for hosting my fantasy dinner party, Viv.

  2. That sounds like such an awesome dinner party! Can I come?

    1. Oooh I don't know. I would probably want Gordon Ramsey, but it isn't my dinner party ;(

  4. An eclectic mix at your dinner party, Victoria. I'd love to be a fly on the wall...

    Congrats on your new launch!

    1. Victoria has done a brilliant job. I would like to be there too.

  5. Brilliant guest list - I'd happily sit beside any of them! All the best with your fabulous sounding book.

  6. Thanks, everyone! Who's creating the feast? I think Gordon Ramsey would make an appropriately naughty chef. When he'd finished the cooking part, he could sit down and insult us all over coffee.

    1. Oh how funny! I didn't see this comment and I said the same chef as a reply above!

  7. Fascinating the people we'd invite. I like to play again by picking who I'd sit next to, in this case I think it would have to be Emmeline Pankhurst as I'd love to discuss 'girl power' with her.

    1. Can you imagine Geri from the Spice Girls sat next to Emmeline Pankhurst dicussing girl power...

  8. Snape and Whedon?! Oh I will be there too :D

  9. What a fun dinner party that would be x


Hiya, thanks for stopping by, it is always nice to hear what you have to say, so do leave a comment if you have time.
