Description

Enjoy London's history over a pint after work!

London. The capital city of the nation of shopkeepers. Eight historians will talk for eight minutes each about eight vendors. From dirt poor street criers scratching a living selling watercress, biscuits, smelt to the elegant aisles of Fortnum & Mason, the 300 year old emporium in Piccadilly. Our MC for the evening, as usual, is the excellent Matt Brown who will run the show and set a fiendish speed quiz before the half-time interval. Prizes!

The line-up so far:
The Gentle Author on Street Vendors
Tina Baxter on Leadenhall Market
Jane Young on Cooperative Stores
Dave Whittaker on Gamages
Andrea Tanner on Fortnum and Mason
Diane Burstein on St James's: Locke & Co; Lobb; and Floris.
