Christmas Carol-themed walking tour of London
We're delighted that Lucinda Hawksley will be taking the Society on a bespoke Christmas Carol-themed walking tour of London. This December will mark the 175th anniversary of the publication of A Christmas Carol so it is a very apt event to run this year! We will take a tour from Holborn, ending up in the City (near Leadenhall Market), and at the conclusion of the tour, we will enjoy a seasonal glass of mulled wine (or ’smoking bishop', as they drink in the book)!
We will meet at 5.45pm before the tour at 6pm; the cost is £15 per person. Numbers are strictly limited to 25, so please book early.

Book Group – Lent Term Meeting
8:00pm – Fellows' Breakfast Room, College
Cambridge has a tradition of academics writing fiction alongside their core work. MR James’ ghost stories are probably what would spring to mind for most people, but the archaeologist Glyn Daniel also indulged, and it is his The Cambridge Murders that we will be discussing on January 28. Published in 1945, it’s a well crafted example of the end of the golden age of detective fiction. The genre would soon be moved on towards the thriller, for instance by Marjory Allingham’s The Tiger in the Smoke (1952).
While it's largely set in an imaginary college on the Backs, the city and area round it is real and you will have no trouble visualising the characters in situ. But can you beat Sir Richard Cherrington to working out what’s been going on and why?
Come and chat it through over dessert in the lovely setting of the Fellows’ Breakfast Room from 8pm.
