NATIONAL TRUST Watford and District Association
You’ve never had it so good – London in the 50s and 60s.
Speaker: Colin Oakes.
Colin Oakes returns to look at when London got back on its feet after the war years. From
bomb sites, austerity, rationing and export or die, spiv suits, new look, big bands to rock and
roll. The period was one which saw jazz change from “trad” to modern, food go from spam
fritters to tikka Masala, immigration from Maltese to multi-culturalism – you didn’t know it
at the time but “You never had it so good”. Colin is an archaeologist who since 1982 has also
taken walking tours. Later these developed into talks on many different subjects.
Start time 8.00pm. Admission for non-members of the Association £2.
