Come to a supper and talk by America's leading scholar of the 1909 Labour Party's People's Budget. Supper is gratis, but a reservation is required.
Shipley Duggins, historian, has just blown into town and here's a chance for an intimate repast and conversation with he who knows most about the UK's most far-reaching liberation legislation effort ever. Jeremy Corbyn takes a kneel to Churchill on this one.
