Sir Winston Churchill – the Greatest Briton of All Time” post-show forum with Mike Groves of the International Churchill Centre. A man of unparalleled achievement, who burst with energy and new ideas, Winston Churchill is considered by many to be the greatest Briton of all time. But he has his detractors. In a recent article in Zimbabwe’s largest daily newspaper, a critic described him as “a great symbol of racist Western imperialist tyranny”. Churchill famously said “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” So which is fact and which is fiction? Churchill enthusiast Mike Groves of the International Churchill Centre and Churchill Dining Club will delve into Churchill’s family life, upbringing, military career and political life, sharing with us some of his insights into what he believes made Churchill great. Saturday 20th February at The Court Theatre Matinee: 2pm, Tickets available from The Court Theatre website; Post-show Talk (Free): 4:30-5:15pm Anyone is welcome to attend the post-show talk even if you haven’t been to see the show.
