Tonight sees the Trollope Society’s Annual Lecture take place at the National Liberal Club, Whitehall Place, London SW1A 2HE, starting at 6pm.
The Lecture, entitled “The Life and Times of Anthony Trollope through the obsessive focus of a Collector”, will be given by Geordie Greig, Editor of The Mail on Sunday and the self-confessed obsessive collector of the title. It promises to be an intriguing perspective.
Entry to the lecture is free and there is a buffet supper to follow (at a charge) in the elegant surroundings of the library of the Club, surrounded by portraits of famous Liberals of the past. The portraits even get so far as the loos, though it has to be said that those are cartoon caricatures. All I can say is that it can be a little off-putting to one’s purpose on visiting said loos to have Gladstone frowning down at you from the wall.
