On Friday April 28th at 6pm Rugby School is hosting a street party as part of its 450th anniversary events celebrating the bequest of Lawrence Sheriff (1510–67), ‘purveyor of spices to Queen Elizabeth 1st’ who owned extensive property in Bloomsbury and made provision in his will for the income from Lambs Conduit to endow Rugby School.
The events for Spring/Summer 2017 will be announced here on April 20th.
All the events, apart from those that are free and the Book Group which costs £10, are £25: please ring the office to book.
A reminder: the Persephone Book Group is on the first Wednesday of the month at 6.30. Madeira and bread and cheese are served. On Wednesday 5th April Lydia Fellgett will lead a discussion of They Knew Mr Knight. On Wednesday 3rd May Nicola Beauman will lead a discussion of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.
