At the Winding Wheel

Starts 7.30pm.

Award winning author, Laura Thompson, presents a talk on The Mitford Family, based on her best-selling book, The Six.

They were the Mitford sisters: Nancy, Pamela, Diana, Unity, Jessica, and Deborah.The eldest was a razor-sharp novelist of upper-class manners; the second was loved by John Betjeman; the third was a fascist who married Oswald Mosley; the fourth idolized Hitler and shot herself in the head when Britain declared war on Germany; the fifth was a member of the American Communist Party; the sixth became Duchess of Devonshire.

The intertwined stories of their stylish and scandalous lives-recounted in masterly fashion by Laura Thompson-hold up a revelatory mirror to upper-class English life before and after WWII.
