Middle Temple Tour


Tuesday 13th September – 13:00 – 14:00

One of the four ancient Inns of Court, Middle Temple is situated at the heart of London, overlooking the Thames. Although just moments away from Fleet Street, The Strand and Embankment, the peace and tranquility of the grounds and the awe-inspiring splendor of the buildings is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the London streets. Built between 1562 and 1573, the main buildings have remained virtually unchanged to this day, with many original features surviving the Great Fire of London and both World Wars.

Cost £6:00 (Normal price is £12)
Please email if you would like to reserve a space

The return of Handbagged at Kiln Theatre

From Fri 9 to Wed 14 September

Exclusive £10 Early Bird Tickets Offer for
The return of Handbagged at Kiln Theatre

Margaret Thatcher and Queen Elizabeth II were born within six months of each other. One grew up in the north of England and became the country’s first female Conservative Prime Minister. The other became Queen at 27. They were at the forefront of nationwide and global change. But did they get align?

The Handbagged play shines a light on the weekly meetings held between Thatcher, and Queen Elizabeth II, from 1979 to 1990. On the surface, the pair were all smiles, trying to please one another and save face. But were their pearly white smiles all a facade?

The £10 tickets are for performances from Fri 9 to Wed 14 Sept. If you can’t make those dates, you can get £5 off tickets for performances from Fri 16 to Sat 24 Sept.

To Book tickets please call the Box Office on 020 7328 1000

Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.

It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.

Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.
