PROGRAMME FOR MAY 2018

 

2nd MAY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

ME AND THE OLYMPICS – PETER MATTHEWS

Peter Matthews is an enthusiastic devotee to most sports.  He has a life long interest in the Olympic Games as a statistician, a writer, a broadcaster, and historian.  He will be telling us about the Olympic history in a quick resume and giving an account of his own involvement in the story.

9th MAY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

JEWS AND THE MUSICAL THEATRE – JANE ROSENBERG

A return visit from a lady who enjoyed a successful first visit entertaining us a few months ago.  She takes as her theme the above title, and talks a little, and sings a little.  She will also be playing music on a CD player, and will be quizzing you, the audience, on your musical knowledge.  A very pleasant afternoon in store.

16th MAY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

GROWING UP ON THE FARM – JANE GREENFIELD

This is the story of how Jane’s father’s wartime experiences determined that her life was the opposite of what one would expect of a stereotype London Jewish girl.  She became a farmer’s daughter, helping with all the animals on the farm, whilst at the same time, going to school and growing up.  A far cry from what most of us ‘townies’ experienced.

23rd MAY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTERS 1945 TO THE PRESENT – STUART NAGLER

There has been 14 Prime Ministers between 1945 and the present, from Winston Churchill to Theresa May.  Stuart will attempt to highlight something about everyone and further engage your interest by taking questions.  This will bring back a few memories.

30th MAY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF ROBERT MAXWELL – HELEN FRY

Robert Maxwell (1923-1991) was born Jan Ludvik Hyman Binyamim Hock.  He was a British media proprietor and MP originally from Czechoslovakia.  He rose from poverty to build an extensive publishing empire.  He died under mysterious circumstances in the sea around the Canary Islands.  This is his intriguing story.
