Revolution 1917-2017: the idea that changed the world
AUTUMN LEARNING EVENTS
In 1917 communists seized power in Russia. These events changed the course of history for ever; the conflict between communism and capitalism would dominate the twentieth century.
Join us this autumn at Hampton Court House as we commemorate a hundred years since Red October with a season of fascinating talks and recitals that will bring the events and ideas of the Revolution to life – explore new perspectives on history, politics, art, language and music.
All are welcome.
