Nicholas Lamert Luard (26 June, 193725 May, 2004) was a writer and politician, but is perhaps best known for his activities in the early 1960s: co-founding The Establishmentmarker with Peter Cook and being one of the Lords Gnome of Private Eyemarker.


He was educated at Winchester Collegemarker and Magdalene College, Cambridgemarker, where he read English and was taught by F. R. Leavis. He met Peter Cook through Footlights. A very short academic career was replaced by club management on the strength of a legacy. He then went into writing.

With Chris Brasher, Nigel Hawkins and Denis Mollison, he founded the John Muir Trust in 1983. Nick served as Chairman from 1991 to 1997.

Luard stood as a candidate for the Referendum Party in the 1997 general election
