Description

Talk

Margaret Thatcher prided herself on her reputation as the Iron Lady, a nickname given to her by the Red Army newspaper. And throughout her political career, her role as a Cold War Warrior, rallying the West in a crusade against international Communism, played a central part in her public image.

In this enlightening and amusing talk, television presenter and author Dominic Sandbrook explores how the Cold War shaped Mrs Thatcher’s premiership.

Our café remains open to the public when there are evening events taking place, serving a range of speciality coffees and teas, cakes, pastries, snacks, sandwiches, beer and wine.
