- CAN I WATCH LATER? Yes! Sign-up and we'll email you a recording
Britain has a great deal in common with the United States of America, and our bonds have been strengthened over the years by closer contacts. This talk is about the connections between Americans and London, mostly about Americans living in London for a significant period, but we shall also touch on other related connections in such areas as philanthropy, architecture, sculpture and entertainment. Find out the American connections for a well-travelled desk, a Chelsea street ‘full of wonderful possibilities’ and discover the American who is one of the Queens of British pop.

Meet the Host, Andrew
Andrew Warde has more than 40 years experience as a London Blue Badge guide, with additional guide qualifications for the City of London and for Windsor & Eton. He presents illustrated talks and walks in and around London, telling all about historic buildings, curious survivals from times past, or special areas of London life and the Thames riverside. These talks reveal fascinating aspects of London’s past and the people who lived there.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
