Harmsworth Room - Churchill War Rooms


Join us for a unique historical event supporting Veterans! In association with Annington, Stoll brings you the first annual Stoll Lecture: Churchill. The grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, the Rt. Hon. Sir Nicholas Soames MP, speaks about his grandfather from both a historical and personal perspective. Hosted in the Churchill War Rooms where he led the Allied Forces to victory this is a unique opportunity to learn more about arguably one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century.

  • Listen as the grandson of this beloved Prime Minister delivers a 45 minute lecture followed by a Q&A session;
  • Visit the meeting rooms where the Chiefs of Staff and Cabinet met to make crucial decisions in our fight against Nazi Germany;
  • Explore the warren of bedrooms, offices and dining rooms where a small army of staff sheltered from the bombs falling above to ensure the government carried on towards victory;
  • Discover the story of Winston Churchill's remarkable 90-year life, from his lonely childhood, to his military career, two periods as Prime Minister and beyond in the award-winning interactive exhibition;
  • Be a part of a truly unique event in a hidden historic treasure under the streets of London.

Sir Nicholas will speak for 45 minutes to an hour and then give a 15 minute question and answer session. Private viewing of the Cabinet War Rooms and associated exhibitions is included in ticket price allowing attendees to explore these at their leisure before and after the lecture.

VIP tickets are available which include a post-lecture champagne reception and the opportunity to meet Sir Nicholas personally. The reception will be hosted in the famous Harmsworth Room housing the generators that powered the war rooms.

The Stoll Lecture is supported by our corporate partner Annington. Having somewhere to call home is a fundamental need for us all but for some individuals leaving the military, homelessness can become a sad reality. Stoll’s excellent work in rehousing veterans has offered a lifeline for many over the years, helping them turn their lives around and find a life beyond the military,” says Helen Liddell, Chairman of Annington. “We are delighted to be sponsoring the inaugural Stoll Lecture and in doing so, helping Stoll continue their tremendous work.

Ed Tytherleigh, Chief Executive at Stoll, said: “Who better to give a lecture about Sir Winston Churchill than his grandson, Sir Nicholas Soames? We are delighted to be hosting this inaugural lecture which will be an exciting opportunity for Veterans, historians and people with an interest in leadership, politics and the military to learn more about Churchill. Sir Winston played a unique role in the life of our nation and we are looking forward to welcoming Sir Nicholas to give his own personal account of his grandfather.

Regarding the partnership with Annington Mr Tytherleigh said “I am delighted that Annington is sponsoring our inaugural lecture on Churchill. Annington’s financial support and the generosity of them and our other donors enable Stoll to provide much needed housing and support for the nation’s vulnerable ex-Servicemen and women.

All profits from the lecture will support the work of Stoll (The Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation) housing and helping vulnerable Veterans in the UK (Registered charity no. 207939). For further details about the work of Stoll visit the website www.stoll.org.uk
