FERGAL KEANE
Ireland: A Memoir of Love and War
Veteran BBC foreign correspondent
Fergal Keane provides a personal history
of conflict in Ireland. By revisiting a story
that dominated his childhood - the
murder of a British soldier
on the street outside his
grandmother’s house - he
seeks to make sense
of why people kill for a
cause, and how they live
with it.
RADICAL WALK
Discover Wimbledon’s radical history
Between 1881 and 1896 William Morris
and the artist Edward Burne-Jones
had workshops in Wimbledon, where
they advocated treating workers fairly.
However, these early socialists were not
the only ones who forged the radical
history of Wimbledon. To discover more,
join Peter Walker fromWimbledon’s
William Morris House on an informative
tour of Wimbledon.
The walk will finish at
the Leather Bottle.
