Discovering London Talk
Our London talks with Peter Berthoud, a London Guide and Writer, have moved to an evening slot in our private events room no less!
Pete looks at an unusual aspect of London’s history and our first talk of the year will be on London As It Might Have Been.
Thursday 24th January, 7.30pm
Peter will be sharing images of the sometimes visionary, sometimes just plain bizarre ideas that architects, planners and others have had to “improve” the city over the years. A square Piccadilly Circus, a tideless Thames, monorails and urban airports, new bridges, grand vistas and a rather morbid pyramid are just some of the schemes that never quite got off the ground.
There will be the opportunity to ask questions and to look at some original plans. You can also enjoy a drink, meal or snack before, during or after the talk – there will be an interval and we’ll be offering a special Discover London deal!
£10 for a glass of house wine and a choice of…
Stew – beef in red wine with fresh sage and homemade soda bread
Curry – thai green curry with rice
Tart – spinach, potato, feta & sun dried tomatoes with cous cous & green salad
