Following the great success of our inaugural, experimental History in the Pub on 21 September, we have decided to squeeze one in before the year draws to a close, and then put together a fabulous programme for 2012.
History in the Pub II is next Tuesday, 29 November, again upstairs at The Bell in Middlesex Street, Spitalfields. Best tubes are Aldgate, Aldgate East or Liverpool Street. 7 pm start, doors open at 6:30pm.
Once again Matt Brown will MC the evening and run the Speed Quiz while Ruairidh Anderson has kindly agreed to return to give us some more of his amazing anecdotes and ballads from the old East End. The other stars of the bill are Professor Tim Hitchcock who’ll tell us about 18C workhouses and history author Nigel Jones who will regale us with some strange tales from the Tower, based on his new book, An Epic History of the Tower of London.
The evening’s prizes will be two signed books – one of each by Tim and Nigel; and a free annual membership subscription to London Historians. Afterwards, like last time, we can continue drinking and socialising downstairs.
Entry is free for London Historians members, £3 for non-members. History in the Pub I was utterly over-subscribed. Please secure your place asap by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Not essential, but please put “HitP II” in the Subject line.
