A Tour of Wanstead House

March 31 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A talk by Hannah Armstrong to mark the launch of her landmark history of Wanstead House: East London’s Lost Palace.

Hannah will become a virtual tour guide, leading us through the different rooms of Wanstead House, pointing out some of the fascinating items we would have seen along the way.

Some parts of the interior were saved when the house was demolished, and Hannah has tracked some of them down to other buildings. Using contemporary descriptions of parties and events which took place at Wanstead House, she will bring the atmosphere of Wanstead’s lost palace alive again. Tickets available below: £7.50 each or £10 for two.

There will be an opportunity to get books signed by Hannah and also to purchase copies of the book. You can pre-order copies via Wanstead Bookshop here.

NB. From 5pm: Pre-orders of the book which have been made through Wanstead Bookshop can be collected from the Churchill Room. Come and meet Hannah and get your copy signed. Free
