Remembrance Day event 11 Nov 2010

Got a favourite poem of Remembrance?

Like to read it out or have it read for you?

Then email about your choice ASAP, and next, come along to a Vauxhall Society event on Armistice Day, Thursday November 11 at 7pm.

You’ll also get a peek inside the historic Brunswick House, named after a former owner, the Duke of Brunswick, who was killed on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

The Vauxhall Society’s Remembrance Evening is being held in the Salon Room of Brunswick House, where Naomi Lourie Klein, Philippa Owen and Ross Davies will present a programme of poems and stories with a Vauxhall connection.

Admission is free, and open to non-members of the Society although a contribution towards Society funds is welcome.

Refreshments are available at the Brunswick House café before or after.

Brunswick House is now the London HQ of architectural antiques specialists LASSCO, and The Vauxhall Society’s Remembrance event is being held there through the generosity of LASSCO’s proprietor Adrian Amos.

Adrian, a Vauxhall Society member, is the saviour of Brunswick House, which had been on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk Register until he bought and renovated it.
