Tuesday 10 August: Steve Huxham

An ancient City of London Livery Company,  Pattenmakers,  re-connects with its history, using modern research methods

Pattens (elevated contraptions of wood, leather, and iron to strap to shoes and raise above the weather and the filth in city streets) the industry died over 100 years ago, so how did the Company survive to the present day?   Pattens are referenced through almost the whole timespan of English literature.  Communicating this story in a lively read was the challenge for two Company (amateur!) historians  - the first  Company History since 1926, giving the social context of the times,  meeting  intriguing characters from Pattenmaker History.   The talk will inspire anyone considering their own historical research on family or other topics as to what is possible and achievable.

Steve Huxham  Recruiter  for SMEs in UK and internationally,   is Advisor/Non-Executive Director to start-up businesses.  A lifetime of headhunting is a very transferable skill for the detective work needed for historical research! 

Tuesday 24th August: Michael Attenborough

Michael Attenborough was Artistic Director at the Palace Theatre Watford for 5 years then then a further 5 years as Artistic Director at Hampstead Theatre. During that time, 5 of the 33 plays he produced, transferred to the West End and one to Broadway. From there he moved to the RSC and in 2002 he became Artistic Director at the Almeida Theatre until 2013.  There he produced 28 premieres, 10 new versions of foreign plays, ten new plays for young people and four major festivals. He has directed far too many plays to list, been nominated for many awards and in 2013 was awarded a CBE for services to theatre. He will be in conversation with Liz who was his PA at Hampstead Theatre for two years and had a thoroughly enjoyable time working with him there!
