How’s your local history? Just over 100 years ago, a London MP, John Burns, described the Thames as “Liquid History”. Come and enjoy an interactive evening with Malcolm Eady, over a delicious 2-course supper, as he uses the Thames as a Golden Thread to delve into our recent history via the many collections of historic photographs, drawings and paintings.
