Genre: Event with live subtitles

Synopsis

Discover how London cracked out of its medieval shell, sprawled into the suburbs and emerged as a "human awful wonder of God" in this mesmerising, vividly illustrated talk by Dr Matthew Green, author of London: A Travel Guide Through Time which has been hailed by the Londonist as "easily the most engaging social history of London for a decade". Hear tales of medieval bear pits, Georgian coffee houses, Victorian pornography shacks, medieval zoos and more, in this whirlwind tour of the capital's past which will be seared into the soft wax of your mind forever. Once you have experienced this, you will never see London in the same light again. 

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
