"Flowers of Cities - All London from Prison to Palace" Colin Pinney Saturday 20 January 2018

14.15 - 16.00

Colin will narrate an off–beat tour of the capital from Prison to Palace, via a few bridges, several disastrous fires, four thousand tons of gold, nine windmills, seven ravens and two cats.  The programme springs a few surprises – even for locals.  For ex-Londoners it should evoke many memories and for would-be visitors is an entrancing travelogue.
