Bishopsgate Institute brightens up the damp squib of our summer with promise of a smoky autumn programme of edification through vice, violence, sauce and corruption.

Bent coppers, fiddling MPs and reckless bankers all get a going over whilst the 1950s are probed for sexiness pre-swinging sixtes and 2,000 years of political conflict are raked over. An august line up of speakers await your pleasure, including journalist Andrew Giligan and historian Clive Bloom plus a scandalous walk with author and blue badge guide, Diane Burstein.

The events run from October to December, augmenting the Bish's regular free concerts, library tours and short courses.

Events £8/6. Book ahead with wegottickets or call 020 7392 9220.
