Diamond Days

“An all-night sitting in a theatre would be at least as enjoyable as an all-night sitting in the House of Commons, and much more useful.”
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950), the Preface to Saint Joan

Commissioned for the Barnes Literary Society’s End of Year Entertainment.

A presentation by three estimable Victorian journalists on the exciting events of Her Majesty Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration. Hear the Queen’s own thoughts on the day, see the reaction of the cheering crowds and indulge your tastebuds while you listen to eyewitness reports from the men and women who were lucky enough to be there…
