PROGRAMME FOR OCTOBER 2018

3rd OCTOBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

AROUND AND ABOUT WITH BOZ (CHARLES DICKENS) – NICK DOBSON

If you believe that Charles Dickens’s influence was confined to this country, you would be wrong.  He left his mark in many countries all over the world, and even had a connection with England and Australia competing for the cricketing Ashes. This is the main thrust of today’s talk, but Nick will not be forgetting the major contribution Dickens made to English literature. 

10th OCTOBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

100 YEARS OF DECEPTION, HOAXES AND SWINDLES OF THE 18th CENTURY – IAN KEABLE

The 1700’s were a period when the people of England seemed to be exceptionally gullible.  In this entertaining talk Ian relates and illustrates sundry hoaxes and deliberate deceptions, all of which are memorable, not only for the imaginative nature of the swindle, but for the differing motives of the tricksters.

17th OCTOBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

PRESIDENT JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY – A BIOGRAPHY – JEF PAGE

John Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States from 1961 until he was assassinated in 1963.  Jef Page has been a freelance lecturer for over 30 years on historical subjects and will talk about the life, times and work of this charismatic politician and his place in history.

24th OCTOBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

JEWS IN THE MUSICALS – LYNNE BRADLEY

With tongue in cheek Lynne says that if there weren’t any Jews in America, there wouldn’t be any Musicals.  They have been involved in every facet of what is known as ‘The Musical’.  They come as composers, singers, producers, writers etc., Lynne’s talk covers the whole gambit.  She will be singing as well, so ring up the curtain.

31st OCTOBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

OLDER PEOPLE’S FINANCES – ALISSA BAYER

Alissa Bayer is a prominent City Investment Consultant.  She will be talking generally about what you should be doing with your money as you get older, and the changing views about investment.  She asks if you would want your children to tell you what to do.
