Cecil Beaton: Malice in Wonderland

06 Apr, 2018


Vickers ,-Hugo (2)  2017 Festival (1)

We are delighted to once again be a sponsor of the Chalke Valley History Festival which is returning for its eighth year from the
25th June – 8th July.

This year, we are sponsoring a lecture intriguingly named ‘Cecil Beaton: Malice in Wonderland’, delivered by hugely respected writer and broadcaster, Hugo Vickers on Tuesday 26th June. By personal request, Hugo became Cecil Beaton’s authorised biographer and was given access to voluminous unpublished material. Interestingly, as Beaton passed away two days later, Hugo was subject to none of the usual restrictions placed on biographers.

Here he will explore the legacy of the legendary photographer, designer and artist – a Renaissance man whose style and wit dominated so much of the 20th century.

We very much look forward to Hugo’s lecture, which is taking place on the 26th June at 6.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £13.75. Full details of the festival can be found at
