Writing the Cold War
June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£12
The works of John le Carré
A National Archives talk and film screening
The novels of John le Carré have always sought to represent a seamier side to the world of espionage and the supposedly ‘glamorous’ life of a spy.
Dr Sam Goodman explores what le Carré’s novels say about Britain and Britishness in a time of declining international authority, shifting global politics, and the shadow of the Cold War.
The talk is followed by a free screening of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011).
The café remains open to the public when there are evening events taking place, serving a range of speciality coffees and teas, cakes, pastries, snacks, sandwiches, beer and wine.
Tickets £12.00 / concessions
