The Age of Decadence

  • This event has passed.

Simon Heffer

Thursday 12th October 17:15 - 18:15 | Northwood House

Journalist, author and political commentator, Simon Heffer, exposes the contradictions of late Victorian and Edwardian Britain.

He lights up the era through vivid pen-portraits of the great men and women of the day – including Gladstone, Parnell, Asquith and Churchill, but also Mrs Pankhurst, Beatrice Webb, Baden-Powell, Wilde and Shaw – creating a richly detailed panorama of a great power that, through both accident and arrogance, was forced to face potentially fatal challenges. Chaired by Sir Richard Ottaway.
