The February lecture is –   Packing up the Nation |  Lecturer - Caroline Shenton | Tuesday 9th February 2021 |  7.30 for 7.45 p.m.

This is the gripping and sometimes hilarious story of how a band of heroic curators and eccentric custodians saved Britain’s national heritage during our Darkest Hour.  As Hitler’s forces gathered on the other side of the Channel to threaten these islands, men and women from London’s national museums, galleries and archives forged extraordinary plans to evacuate their collections to safety.  Dr Caroline Shenton will tell us how a dedicated team of unlikely heroes packed up their greatest treasures in a race against time during the sweltering summer of 1939, dispatching them throughout the country.

 Caroline is an archivist and historian.  She was formerly Director of the Parliamentary Archives in London, and before that was a senior archivist at the National Archives.  Her book The Day Parliament Burned Down won the Political Book of the Year Award in 2013 and Mary Beard called it ‘microhistory at its absolute best’.  She was Political Writer in Residence at Gladstone’s Library in 2017, has appeared at the Cheltenham, Hay and Henley literary festivals and on BBC radio and TV.
