  • There are many ways of studying the tumultuous twentieth century – but one of the most revealing must be through the key books of the time. Christopher Tugendhat shows how literature both shaped and reflected public concerns over the decades – from Lord of the Flies to A Room of One’s Own to Heart of Darkness. After a long and distinguished career in government, business and public service, Lord Tugendhat has included in his fasinating book many of the writers who have influenced him including, CP Snow, Noel Coward, Ernest Gombrich.

  • Legendary cricket broadcaster and national treasure, Henry Blofeld takes the audience on a journey from A-Z through the world of cricket.  There are many reasons to love ‘Blowers’, not least that he is the voice synonymous with BBC Radio 4 and 5’s Test Match Specials. In his trademark charming style he explains some of the puzzling cricket terminology and tells his favourite anecdotes from half a century’s association with the sport. His stories are not only entertaining but reflect changes in the cricket, while identifies his cricketing heroes. There is a glossary for those who want to make sure of the difference between googlys and bouncers!

  • Jason inherited his love of adventure and an exploratory addiction to food and how to grow, harvest and enjoy it from his late mother, the writer Jocasta Innes. She was a polymath of ideas for homemaking and how to live life to the full. Her book: Paint Magic is a classic for anyone wishing to decorate their home and a copy of The Pauper’s Cookbook is a Bible for everyone who enjoys food without the extravagance. Jason talks about his Mother’s influence on his life and has recently republished one of her cookery books: The Country Kitchen. His talk will be followed by a delicious feast based on his Mother’s recipes. With 2 course lunch. Please telephone Sladers Yard (01308 459511) for reservations.

  • For more than twenty-five years, Dr David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones.  From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major hospital.  Driven by compassion and the desire to help others, and putting himself in extreme personal danger, David is now acknowledged by the world to be the most experienced trauma surgeon. Flying into a catastrophe was not enough as  other doctors needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts. Since 2015, David and his wife, Elly, have set up a foundation training doctors in the art of saving lives – those threatened by bombs and bullets.
