On Saturday, June 20th, we invite you to join Janie Hampton, author of The Austerity Olympics, as she takes a look at the greatly successful 1948 ‘Ration Book Olympics’, hosted by post-war London in the midst of economic crisis. With the London 2012 Olympics fast approaching and many of us asking whether big budget plans really will prove to be money well spent, this talk promises to raise some interesting debate.
Tickets are priced at £9.50 and the talk is set to start at 10 a.m. at Kings Place, York Way, N1 9AG.
