An Evening with Kent Gavin Royal Photographer (book signing after each show)

Seven times ‘Royal Photographer of the Year’ and twice ‘Royal Photographer of the Decade’, in the 1980s and 1990s, largely due to the privilege afforded him by Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, the Princess of Wales.
Countless times Kent was the only official newspaper photographer in attendance. As was the case when he was personally invited by the Princess of Wales to witness and record the christening of Prince William, capturing iconic images, famous the world over. This was also the honoured situation he found himself in, when asked to accompany the royal party on the Royal Barge at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on the River Thames.

"We do all the favourites, all the No 1s. Every hit you can think of."

"Expect a fun-packed, enthusiastic show. The response is great. We always get asked back. People are dancing in the aisles.

The show given by “The Stones” is like a concert that The Rolling Stones would have given in 1972, when they were at their best and fully deserved their title of “The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World”.
