The National Trust offers a fantastic Talks Service and we welcomed one of their presenters, Ray Isted, last week for their talk, ‘Cliveden House – ‘The War Years’.

Ray was back with us by popular demand, having previously entertained us with their ‘Passion, Pleasure and Politics’ talk – all about the Profumo Affair – and ‘The Astors’ – another fascinating insight into the history of this famous house.

Ray’s slideshow included photos of the Canadian Hospital and Cliveden ‘then and now’.

We were delighted to present Ray with a donation to The National Trust and have already asked him to return to us next year!
