SALON NO. 67: GEORGIAN LONDON UNDRESSED
Getting your kit off (and on)- 18th C. Style

6.30pm Thursday 25th July 2019
WESTMINSTER ARTS LIBRARY
35 St Martins Street
London WC2H 2CP

Tickets include 'corset loosening' Hendricks Gin

By the early 18th century, London was the largest city in Europe and the capital of a growing empire around the world, a place of extreme contrasts: respectability and debauchery, poverty and vast wealth. 

That wealth spawned a new middle class, hungering for elegance, society, sex - and fashion.  Join Georgian Historians MIKE RENDELL and TINA BAXTER as they uncover the secrets of the closets and extraordinary habits of Georgian ladies, respectable and scandalous.

SALON NO. 68: DECADENT LONDON
Victorian Sin City

6.30pm Thursday 26th September 2019
WESTMINSTER ARTS LIBRARY
35 St Martins Street
London WC2H 2CP

Tickets include an 'gilded lilly' of Hendricks Gin

London in the1890’s was synonymous with decadence. As the last decade of the century drew to a close, there was a flowering of intense creativity by a coterie of brilliant, self-destructive, daring darlings and dandies.

Join cult writers NINA ANTONIA and ANTONY CLAYTON and meet both notorious figure-heads and lesser known doyens of decadent London's fashionable and influential milieu i- ncluding Aubrey Beardsley, Arthur Symons, Ernest Dowson and Lionel Johnson, the mysterious 'shadow-man' who disastrously introduced his close friend, Lord Alfred Douglas to Oscar Wilde

SALON NO. 69: SECRETS OF LEGAL LONDON
The Truth and Nothing but the..

6.30pm Wednesday 30th October 2018
WESTMINSTER ARTS LIBRARY
35 St Martins Street
London WC2H 2CP

Tickets include a 'sentence' of Hendricks Gin

Hidden right in the middle of the city of London is the tranquil, almost secret, labyrinth of the Temples and the Inns of Court: the built analogue of the secretive, labyrinthine system of the ancient British legal system.

Witness ex-lawyer COLIN DAVEY and barrister PETER DODGE as they hold court, present their case and reveal some of the stories hidden in an urban enclave that, like Dickens' Bleak House Jarndyce v Jarndyce, has 'become so complicated, that no man alive knows what it means”
