Absolute beginners Bridge with Andrew Robson

images-8You have just one week to join Andrew Robson’s beginners bridge class at Bumpkin (Westbourne Park Road) starting 23rd September 2.15-4pm. Now I know this is fab because I have done it and am now moving onto intermediate (I know). I went reluctantly last year, dragged by a card loving fiend and a bit interested in why my mother for over 40 years would twice a week leave all of us for dead with a microwave supper rather than miss her bridge sessions. Images of grey old ladies, sucking mints and discussing bunions spring to mind when the grand game is mentioned. Here’s the surprise: Bridge is extremely relaxing, you forget everything while your brain tunes into which suit you should be bidding, finessing or trying to ditch, and the Notting Hill crowd may be sucking mints (sugar free) but the days of thick ankles, arthritis and hair loss are not yet nigh in Bumpkin on Tuesdays. When I mention to those in the bridgey know that I am being taught by THE Andrew Robson, people really gasp in awe. He is the king of the Bridge scene and has an OBE to certify his status. This is the only time this academic year you can start totally from scratch with Andrew and gang. For the beginners class you can be a complete card virgin, literally have never touched a deck. It is about £200 for a term and you email Lorna – [email protected]andrewrobson
