Rose has kindly sent me details of an event next month in aid of Southwark Cathedral's All Hallows Project, and it sounds as though it will be a delightful evening and one I'd attend were I closer.
On 7th. November at 6.30pm, Geoffrey Munn - whom many of us know so well from his appearances on Antiques Roadshow - will give an illustrated talk entitled "From my Beloved Albert - The Personal Jewellery of Queen Victoria". This will take place in the Cathedral's Garry Weston Library, and will be followed by a champagne* reception, and given Geoffrey Munn's obvious love of his subject as well as his extensive knowledge, it's bound to be a sparkling occasion all round and one that's fascinating and fun as well.
Tickets may be purchased from the Cathedral shop (020 7367 6710) or via Rose herself (020 7367 6704), or online here (with booking fee).
*Internationally award-winning English Sparkling wine made using the Champagne grape varietals, supplied by Wine Pantry.
