Tickets are now on sale for historian David Lough’s talk at this year’s Canterbury Festival, controversially titled ‘Churchill and Trump – Birds of a Feather’. The talk takes place on Tuesday 24 october at 5.30 p.m. at the Cathedral Lodge in Canterbury.
David Lough is the author of a ground-breaking new book that reveals the British war leader’s tangled personal life and finances even when he was prime minister. Critics have hailed No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money a ‘classic’ that redefines the way we should look at Churchill and the nature of leadership. Now David Lough compares Churchill’s early life, personal characteristics and addiction to risk-taking with that of another politician whose historical reputation has yet to be determined – Donald Trump.
Tickets for the talk (£10.50) can be purchased here.
