Scarborough’s very own autograph hunter Paul Bradley will be holding a book signing event to celebrate the launch of his new publication.

He will be signing copies of “Paul Bradley’s Galaxy of Stars” in the Rowntree Lounge at the Red Lea Hotel, Prince of Wales Terrace, from 3pm to 5pm on Saturday October 13.

People will have chance to enjoy tea, coffee and biscuits and the chance to chat to Mr Bradley about his celebrity encounters.

The book came out earlier this year, but Mr Bradley says it is only just sinking in and he has really been looking forward to doing a book signing.

He said: “It’s really exciting. It’s amazing really.

“I’ve had a great reaction to the book so far. It feels real now.”

Since completing the book, Mr Bradley has gathered even more celebrity photos and autographs.

He managed to get around 90 just at the BAFTA Television Awards in May.

He has also given out copies of his book to some of the stars he has met recently, including Ted Danson, Danny De Vito, Richard Wilson and Beverley Callard.

Mr Bradley, of Norwood Street, has also been pictured with two Scarborough stars - West End performer Ben Ellis and Woman in Black author Susan Hill.

He is also hoping to add to his collection at the new James Bond film premiere at the Royal Albert Hall on October 23.

The event will be attended by Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw, and the director Sam Mendes.

Mr Bradley is a member of The Heritage Foundation, a charity which sees people in the entertainment business working for good causes.

He attends regular events, such as charity dinners, hosted by the organisation.

His book had its London launch at the Regent’s Park Marriott Hotel, as part of a charity lunch hosted by Allo Allo’s Vicki Michelle, who has also written the book’s foreword.

Mr Bradley is now thinking about ideas for another book, saying he would possibly like to do one which focuses solely on pop stars.

He added: “It’s my ten year anniversary of going to the Heritage events and I want to do more.

“I’d like to support them as much as I can and raise some money for them.” Copies of Mr Bradley’s book are available to buy at the signing, or you can go to www.ypdbooks.com
