One of Britain’s best known farmers, television personality Adam Henson, will be the celebrity speaker at a high profile annual dinner.

The Countryside presenter will headline the annual dinner of the county branch of the Institute of Chartered Accountants on Friday, May 6.

The annual dinner will be held in Worcestershire County Cricket Club’s Graeme Hick Pavilion in New Road, Worcester.

Tenant farmer Mr Henson, who has helped convey a positive image of agriculture, runs the Cotswold Farm Park, which pioneers rare breed conservation and is a key part of the 650-hectare Bemborough Farm at Guiting Power, near Cheltenham.

He is also farming ambassador with Lloyds TSB Agriculture and the Bank of Scotland to promote sustainable agriculture.

Celia Adams, who is the chairman of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Worcestershire, said: "We are very much looking forward to meeting Adam, who is familiar with the challenges farmers face and has progressive ideas and strong values.

"This should be an interesting night with rich fare ranging from Mark Garnier’s views from the Treasury and Adam’s highly informed perceptions for local businesses."
