Lewes Arms, Wed Dec 11th
7.30pm first talk £7
In November we learned from Anna MacLeod about the incredible heroics of the men in the second world war who were ‘human torpedoes’ and the lucky few who survived. Ben Bailey explored the apocalyptic visions of Hollywood Blockbusters, complete with his own homemade charts and graphs and Tom Cutler revealed the ‘happiest day of my life’ when he was diagnosed as having Asperger’s.
We end the year with our very first exclusively Lewesian line-up: author Lulah Ellender, speaker John Lawrenson and Thelma McGough who, amongst many other astonishing facts, was John Lennon’s first girlfriend!
Tickets in advance advisable.

In November we were taken on a very personal journey into the family life of Colleen Slater via her photography; Ben Bailey explored the idea that Hollywood sci-fi narratives are too dystopian and could do with an injection of hope and positivity, and actor Doug Devaney took us on a journey into musical feuds – from the Beatles to Fleetwood Mac – in which we learned that to do the job properly you need to make it personal and make it quick.
We also learned that the Church of Twatt on Orkney is for sale, should you be thinking of moving somewhere cheaper.
For December we welcome the return of Andy ‘meteor collector’ Spector, comedian Luise Reay and, all the way from the States, Cammie Toloui.
Please note that one of these talks will feature images of a very saucy nature.
