Virtual master classes with Alice Leader

Royal Scandals
The royals certainly have a tricky time with scandal! Let's talk about the historical upheavals surrounding the Prince Regent, Queen Victoria, Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII, and modern-day trials and tribulations of Charles and Diana, Andrew's coverage in the press, and Harry and Meghan’s decisions. Will they return to the UK? Will they resume royal duties and might Harry return to the military? We’ll follow every step! Zoom sessions take place on Tuesdays, 12 January-2 March, 2-3:30 pm. Cost: £300. Watch this space for updates about hopes for a field trip next year! Questions to Alice Leader.

The English Comic Novel
It feels as though there isn't much humor around right now—let’s change that! Read the books for this course and laugh; this is British humor at its best. We'll look at Three Men in a Boat, still considered one of the funniest books ever, before moving into the periods following World War I & II with Wodehouse, Waugh and the Grossmith brothers. Amis brings us into the 1950s, and Lodge into the 1970s. Zoom sessions take place on Thursdays, 14 January-4 March, 2-3:30 pm. Cost: £300. Watch this space for updates about hopes for a field trip next year! Questions to Alice Leader.
