Listen to Professor Simon Heffer who delights audiences at The Oldie Literary Lunch on Tuesday 17th October 2023


Professor Simon Heffer, the extremely distinguished journalist and writer, tells The Oldie Literary Lunch on Tuesday 17th October, about Britain between the wars, and in great detail about Neville Chamberlain who was once perceived to be a Nazi sympathiser but actually did some great reform work for Britain. Simon has written the trilogy on the Chips Channon diaries amongst many other publications and has now written about Britain between 1919 and 1939. The book is 960 pages long, so Simon gives us the headlines. We hear about Gracie in the film Sing As We Go, a must see spectacle showing the work houses of the time. This book is a must-read.
