Supper Talk on THURSDAY 27th SEPTEMBER, 7.30pm
MY YEARS WITH THE CHURCHILLS with HEATHER WHITE-SMITH
£25 including 2 course supper
Heather White-Smith is author of the book 'My Years with the Churchills’ which tells the true story through her diaries, of a 17 year old girl who, shortly before the coronation in 1953 was given the job as Assistant Private Secretary to Lady Churchill, wife of the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.
She tells of her time working at 10 Downing Street and shares her memories of her time in office shadowing the greatest living Englishman, his family, friends, and world-famous visitors as well as her daily duty of looking after Lady Clementine Churchill.
From shopping for ball-gown material, to trips to the theatre, to the unruly behaviour of Winston Churchill’s budgerigar Toby, Heather talks fondly of her time with the Churchills with not a political but an honest, unique and affectionate account of life with this historic couple, with many untold, intimate anecdotes.
