About the event

7pm to 9pm, Wednesday 30 June 2021

Hi A big hello to all our Swindon members at last there is something to look forward to. 

We would like to welcome you to a live event local in Swindon.

Don't miss out on our free talk on Carrots, Courtesans & Culture by Martin Collisson.

We will all be in Stage 4 after 21st June of government guidelines on Covid-19 so there will be no longer be limits on social gatherings for events. 

Martin's presentation includes the early history of Covent Garden and its "change of use" to the centre of the Bawdy and Bagnio houses catering for the rakes in Georgian England to its current position as the premier tourist meeting place for street entertainment. It will also include the cultural aspects of the area particularly the nearby Royal Opera House.

This talk promises to be a fascinating and entertaining evening providing an insight into a popular national landmark with slides.

We hope you will come out and support our latest event and enjoy the evening.

There is free parking to the rear of the Hotel.

Refreshments will be available as usual subject to the hotel's normal arrangements.

If it is a nice evening we could even enjoy a drink in the garden after.
