The Great Fire of London 1666-2016

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Author Ian Doolittle describes the surprising history of the Great Fire over 350 years.  How did it become a red-hot party-political issue? Why were the Roman Catholics still official scapegoats in 1830?  What happened to the Fire in London's histories in the 19th century?  And how have recent historians reconstructed what actually happened in 1666?  Ian is the author of important works on the City of London.  

Includes wine reception.
