Fiona and Amy, from the Royal Collection Trust, will be joined by Karly Allen who will be introducing the drawings of the German artist Hans Holbein.

When his mother eloped with an Italian opera singer, Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price) was cut off from her aristocratic family. After the family refuses to let her be buried in the family mausoleum, Louis avenges his mother’s death by attempting to murder every family member (all played by Alec Guinness) who stands between himself and the family fortune. But when he finds himself torn between his longtime love (Joan Greenwood) and the widow of one of his victims (Valerie Hobson), his plans go awry.

Walk around London

Stroll through Surrey Quays with Richard

Saturday 11th November, 11:00 – 13:00

Join Richard for a leisurely walk from Canada Water to Tower Hill. We will stroll along the Albion Channel to the river. Take a look at the area termed Rotherhithe Village, which includes St Mary’s Church and The Brunel Museum.

We then follow the Thames as much as we can past “The Crooked House” to Tower Bridge followed by a walk over Tower Bridge to Tower Green.

It’s expected the walk will take nearly two hours or so. Once at Tower Green there is a large Wetherspoons, where, for those who wish, there will be an opportunity to have a coffee or something more substantial.

Meet at Canada Water Station at 11am just outside the small Sainsbury (As you exit the barriers, keep left).
