If you fancy spending some of your hard earned, I’m giving you 3 chances in the next few months to come and hear me drone on. Lucky you.
First, Tuesday 13 May at the Rag (Army & Navy Club) in St James’s Sq. London: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/alumni/events/items/Birmingham-Heroes-Lecture-Roads-to-War-1914-Revisited.aspx
That is a fund-raiser for Birmingham alumni but I’m told everyone’s welcome.
Secondly, down in Welsh Wales on Friday 23 May it’ll only cost you £5 at the Hay-on-Wye Festival: https://www.hayfestival.com/p-7944-jonathan-boff.aspx where I’ll be talking about lessons learned in preparing for war between 1914 and 1939.
Thirdly, back in the Home Counties, on Saturday 28 June I’m talking in Dorking at a Surrey Western Front Association conference. £18. http://www.westernfrontassociation.com/news/newsflash/3624-over-by-christmas-a-seminar-reflecting-on-the-events-of-1914-wfa-surrey.html
If you fancy coming along to any of these, I can promise you’ll get a good snooze and it’d be nice to see a friendly face. Equally, I quite understand if cutting your toe-nails that day suddenly seems urgent.
