Churchill and Champagne

Outreach lecture series with Paul Beaver at Stockbridge Town Hall
19 December 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us at Stockbridge Town Hall where author, broadcaster and aviator Paul Beaver talks about Churchill and Champagne.

“Gentlemen, we are not fighting for France. It is champagne for which we fight.” Winston Churchill’s love of the French sparkling wine can be summed up in these few words. From a very young age, the great man drank champagne and even during the war, he consumed a bottle a day wherever he was working. Paul Beaver will speak about his travels in Britain, France and Morocco, following Churchill’s taste for champagne and especially the Pol Roger house in Epernay.

This lecture will also offer the opportunity to try Churchill's Champagne, Pol Roger - (£10 cost applies)

During the Museum's closure we will have an outreach series of lectures taking place at Stockbridge Town Hall one Wednesday of each month from November 2018 to March 2019.

Space at the Town Hall is more limited than the Museum so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
