Alan Bennett, born in Armley in 1934. In the book of the Tapestry he was described as being best known for "Beyond the Fringe", "Talking Heads" and the film "The Madness of King George". He used to shun publicity, hence peeping from behind a curtain on the panel, but he's now one of our National Treasures. Since the Local Faces panel was finished he has had great success with "The History Boys".
In our family he is best known for autographing his collected works for DD at his favorite fish and chip supper diner.
Mr Bennett was embroidered in raised work by Beverley Silverman
