Churchill’s grandson to give lecture on the life of Sir Winston

7.30pm, 12 October, Churchill War Rooms

 

The life of former Prime Minister and war time leader, Sir Winston Churchill, is the subject of a fascinating lecture being hosted by Stoll, the leading provider of supported housing for Veterans. Sir Winston’s grandson, The Rt Hon Sir Nicholas Soames MP, will give the lecture at the Churchill War Rooms in London on 12 October at 7.30pm.

Ed Tytherleigh, Chief Executive at Stoll, said: “Who better to give a lecture about Sir Winston Churchill than his grandson, Sir Nicholas Soames? We are delighted to be hosting this inaugural lecture which will be an exciting opportunity for Veterans, historians and people with an interest in leadership, politics and the military to learn more about Churchill. Sir Winston played a unique role in the life of our nation and we are looking forward to welcoming Sir Nicholas to give his own personal account of his grandfather.”

The lecture takes place in a most appropriate venue, the Churchill War Rooms, from where Sir Winston led the Allied Forces to victory. Following the lecture and Q&A, guests will enjoy a private viewing of the Cabinet War Rooms where the Chiefs of Staff and the Cabinet met; see the bedrooms, offices and dining rooms; and learn more about Winston Churchill’s remarkable 90-year life.

The Stoll Lecture is generously supported by our corporate partner Annington. “Having somewhere to call home is a fundamental need for us all but for some individuals leaving the military, homelessness can become a sad reality. Stoll’s excellent work in rehousing veterans has offered a lifeline for many over the years, helping them turn their lives around and find a life beyond the military,” says Helen Liddell, Chairman of Annington. “We are delighted to be sponsoring the inaugural Stoll Lecture and in doing so, helping Stoll continue their tremendous work.”

All proceeds from the event will go to support Stoll’s work.
