Leicester`s Place in English History

[An image showing Leicester`s Place in English History]I gave an after dinner talk in Leicester recently.

It was for the Britain-Australia Society, and was held at Devonshire Place.

The talk I had been asked to give was one of my own favourites "Leicester`s Place in English History", in which I seek to show that Leicester and the surrounding area have been involved in all the major periods and events over the last two thousand years.

The city`s amazing city involves the Jewry Wall; the Five Boroughs; Simon de Montfort; John of Gaunt; Richard III; Lady Jane Grey; the Civil War; and Thomas Cook. Among others!

And as always, the dinner was super.
