This illustrated talk by Pete Smith, London City Walks

Pete traces
the development of a movement that revolutionized the nineteenth-century art scene and initially scandalized conventional Victorian society. While concentrating primarily on the paintings and writings of the Pre-Raphaelites, it will also deal with the colourful lives of the artists who produced them, and tell stories of drug abuse, sexual intrigues, suicide and even gruesome graveyard goings-on

Is Sutton Part of Black History?

Thursday 26 October 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event for Black History Month

 

We offer a very 'warm welcome' back to Sean Creighton, independent historian of slavery, abolition and British Black history, for another illustrated talk detailing many little known aspects of Sutton's black history

The baptism in Sutton on 15th April 1677 of John Sango, ‘a Moor’, in Sutton is a reminder that Africans and people of African descent have been living and working in Britain for centuries. Most came here because of Britain’s involvement in the slavery business and colonialism. As across the rest of the country there were many involved in the slavery business and then colonialism who lived or had family connections with Sutton. Sean will discuss these connections and the lives of the people involved

Tickets are £4.50 (£3.50 Friends)

Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book
 

Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession

Thursday 23 November 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

We are delighted to once again welcome back the renowned local author Alison Weir to Honeywood Museum

Fresh from the sophisticated palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love. But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game. She has a spirit worthy of a crown – and a crown is what she seeks.  And so she embarks on her perilous course, which will plunge a kingdom into turmoil.

Alison Weir weaves new research and theories into the dark, powerful tale of Henry VIII’s second wife - a woman ahead of her time, who dared to question traditional concepts of femininity, and whose ambition drove her to gamble with the fickle nature of a dangerous king.


Mulled wine and mince pies included in the ticket price!

Tickets are £6 (£5 Friends)

Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book

Sutton Borough's Varied Bus and Rail Services
and how they have changed over the past decades

Thursday 22 February 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

An illustrated talk by John Parkin, local transport historian and enthusiast

Local transport enthusiast and historian John Parkin shows a selection of pictures of trams, trolleybuses, buses and trains to illustrate the way that routes have evolved, vehicle types have come and gone and the way we travel has changed in past decades, where often the backdrop to a photo can depict the many social changes many of us have lived through. The South Met Tramways, London Transport and Southern Region of British Railways are looked at in some depth

Tickets are £5 (£4 Friends)

Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book
 

Edwardian London

Thursday 26 April 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

An illustrated talk by Ian Bevan, City of London Guide & Lecturer

This talk looks at London at the beginning of the 20th century when the death of Queen Victoria heralded the dawn of an Edwardian era with the British empire at its zenith. London was the heart of that empire and new buildings and monuments in the capital reflected the confidence of an Imperial power. London also hosted a Franco-British Exhibition, the Olympic Games and a Festival of Empire that bolstered that image. However, there were tensions as workers unionised, immigration added to the pressures, and women pushed for the vote

Tickets are £5 (£4 Friends)

Please phone 020 8642 4778 to book
