Westminster Kingsway College
Vincent Square, London
Come and join us for what promises to be a fascinating evening as Paul Darroch, former Centenary Scholar in Modern History at St Hugh’s College, Oxford, talks to us about his recent book “Jersey: The hidden histories”.
The book, which has been described as “imaginative and vibrant” tracks the lesser known lives of many well known characters, with histories reaching from Jersey to London, and for many on into America where New Jersey was to be founded.
Paul Darroch will open his talk with the story of Charlie Chaplin, whose journey took him from the brutal poverty of south London to the stage of the Jersey Opera House. This was the day before Chaplin joined the Jersey Battle of Flowers parade, when the course of his life would change forever.
Surely an unmissable night!
As usual, there will be a three course meal preceding the talk, and bar facilities open throughout.
