Diary: Alan's adland reunion

Alan Bishop, the former Saatchi & Saatchi international chairman and COI chief executive who is now boss of the Southbank Centre, will be keeping it in the advertising family when he marries for the third time this month.

Alex, Bishop's bride-to-be, is the sister of Clare Rossi, the Ogilvy & Mather global planning partner. She is married to John Bacon, whose career spans senior creative roles at Saatchi & Saatchi, O&M, FCB and Grey.

Bishop's long-time friend Angus Fear, the one-time Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO and JWT senior manager who is now Adstream's account service director, has been invited to reprise his best man role.

Fear worries that he hasn't exactly been a good luck charm for Bishop's previous attempts at wedded bliss. Fear not, Angus. Diary is sure it will be third time lucky.
