The Spy Games - Ian Haydn Smith in conversation with screenwriter Robert Wade

On Monday 3rd July, we hosted one of our most interesting and unusual events to date – The Spy Game. Robert Wade kindly accepted our invitation to be interviewed by Ian Haydn Smith, so we popped him on a stage and Ian asked him all about his career as a screenwriter and the films he has written, followed by a Q and A.  The event was held in a lovely marquee in Bishop’s Palace private gardens and started off with sparkling champagne and scrumptious canapés, whilst our guests relaxed and wandered around the beautiful the gardens before The Spy Game talk began.

First to take to the stage was our Campaign Chairman, Lis Spence. She updated guests with the latest DREAMBUILDING news and explained how the new Hospice will benefit patients and their families, both at the new Hospice and out in the wider community.

During the talk we found out lots about Robert Wade himself, how his career had developed and the process of writing screen plays. Our guests were amused to hear that Robert wrote many of his early scripts in the Café Rouge that used to be in South Street, Chichester.

Robert then moved on to his current work, explaining his role within the thrilling new BBC adaptation of SS-GB. The DREAMBUILDING team are sure guests would agree that Ian Haydn Smith asked some very interesting questions and Robert Wade gave fascinating and detailed answers.

The night was a huge success and raised over £1,500. We would like to thank Robert Wade and Ian Haydn Smith for joining us for this unique experience and to all the guests that attended the event.
