At 6.15pm on 5 December, I will be talking about the early history of the Iron Curtain, referring to both the Drury Lane Theatre and the Temple Church, just south of Fleet Street, as key locations in a forgotten drama.

The event is at King’s College, on the Strand, and is organised as part of the “Strandlives” project. It’s free. but you are asked to RSVP at the address given on the poster or link.
