Event description

Description

Talk and film screening

The novels of John le Carré have always sought to represent a seamier side to the world of espionage and the supposedly ‘glamorous’ life of a spy.

Here, Dr Sam Goodman explores what le Carré’s novels say about Britain and Britishness in a time of declining international authority, shifting global politics, and the shadow of the Cold War.

The talk will be followed by a free screening of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011).


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.
