Cromwell and communications

Cromwell and communications

The legacy of the Reformation was not simply a transformation of the religious landscape of England, it also presented the opportunity for change and progression in other areas, such as government and the development of the printing industry. Join Nick Barratt, an expert in the era from the University of London, and Marianne Wilson, our Reformation record specialist, for a workshop exploring new interpretations of key documents relating to Thomas Cromwell, communications and the Reformation period. This will provide an exciting opportunity to consider key themes, such as what was lost from medieval culture with the changes in government and communications, and what was gained moving forward.

Ealing Christmas Market

  • Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Ealing Christmas Market returns to Ealing Broadway Centre for its second year on Thursday 23rd November, bringing a unique selection of gifts to West London.

A highlight of the market will once again be The Wonderland Collective – a beautifully decorated cabin featuring luxury and hand designed gifts, many of which you won’t find anywhere else in West London. Known for their design-led popups around London, the collective showcases artisans, makers & creative businesses from across the UK, with an emphasis on British made products. Alongside a selection of the more traditional Christmas stalls you expect at this time of year, there’ll also be a series of weekly popup boutiques from the likes of Home Address, Mala & Bunga and Erskine Rose. Bespoke lighting installations from Chiswick’s Light Fixation will adorn the cabins and also available to purchase.  
 
Father Christmas will be on hand at the weekends and there’s an ice cave every day for the kids to enjoy. Hungry shoppers can stay replenished from a selection of street food stalls (and mulled wine) or rest their weary feet in the covered seating area before. 
 
It’s a familiar Christmas setting – with festive wood cabins, traditional decorations & twinkling lights – but a whole new shopping experience for West London. So don’t go for boring presents this Christmas – make yourself the most popular friend, brother, daughter, parent, or lover in town and head to Ealing for the ultimate Christmas gift ideas.

Age UK Ealing is an independent charity supporting older people in Ealing. Their mission is to help older people have an enjoyable later life. This includes the provision of valuable services to help the elderly with their everyday living requirements such as housing issues, social and wellbeing needs.

Their day care service is independently funded by the centre whom receive no external funding. This includes the provision of day care three days a week, an option for a hot two course meal, an essential part of the day as many older people live alone and miss the social aspect of having a meal with friends and family.

The plan to partition

In June 1947 it was announced that British India would partition into two new nation states – India and Pakistan. Yet when the expected date of British withdrawal from India was brought forward a year, communications broke down and the violence that ensued proved catastrophic. Iqbal Husain (The National Archives), Mandeep Samra and Sonyia Jamal (Let’s Go Yorkshire), and A’Ishah Waheed (Patchwork Archivists) will speak and offer a space for questions and reflections on this momentous event in history. An accompanying display of records from our collection will include the voices of some of the key players, including Jinnah and Gandhi.

Season’s Greetings

The whole family is coming for Christmas. Brace yourself.

It’s the Christmas family get-together at the Bunker home. The men watch TV and go down the pub. The women do all the cooking and look after the kids. It’s the same every year. Except this time.

Unlucky in love Rachel brings along handsome young novelist Clive, hoping to transform their new friendship into something more. But she’s not the only one who wouldn’t mind getting near the mistletoe with him.

Sister Belinda – stuck in a stale marriage and pining for some excitement – finds Clive’s charms hard resist. And alcoholic sister-in-law Phyllis wouldn’t mind getting more familiar with this mildly famous writer too – especially after one too many drinks. 

Will any of their husbands’ realise what’s going on? Loose cannon Uncle Harvey certainly has his suspicions about this new chap – and a career in security has taught him how to handle these situations.
Season’s Greetings is the perfect antidote to the onslaught of forced Christmas cheer. If you’re not familiar with the play, think ‘Love Actually’ for people who aren’t that fond of Christmas (or Hugh Grant). And after watching Ayckbourn’s entertaining comedy who knows, perhaps your own Christmas won’t feel quite so bad.

Tickets: £14 (£12 conc, £7 under-16/student). Final Friday and Saturday: £18 (£15 conc, £9.50 under-16/student). First night only: £7

Prime Ministers and spies: from Asquith to Thatcher

At the start of the 20th century, Prime Ministers and espionage had few ties. As the decades went by, their relationships developed; from Asquith’s Secret Service Bureau, through Churchill’s innovative wartime regime, to the role of intelligence in Cold War decision-making. Speakers Richard Aldrich, Professor of International Security at the University of Warwick, and Rory Cormac, Associate Professor of International Relations at the University of Nottingham, are coauthors of The Black Door. They will explore how the relationship between Number 10 and the Security Services evolved, using records from The National Archives’ collection.

Sylvia Pankhurst: suffragette, socialist and scourge of the empire

Guiding us through Pankhurst’s activism – from her teens as a member of the Independent Labour Party and her time as a leading suffragette before the First World War, to her revolutionary socialist, anti-fascist and anti-imperialist campaigning in later years.
