Simon Kinder will talk on “The Cambridge Spies and their local connections” on Wednesday 4th March 2020.
Simon will explore the fascinating history of Norfolk, spies and traitors. His illustrated talk will begin in the Elizabethan era, visit the Napoleonic Wars before exploring Norfolk’s spies, imagined, alleged and real, during the First and Second World Wars. Finally he will expose how Gresham’s School in Holt became involved in one of the most daring and successful pieces of espionage ever, the Cambridge and Oxford Spy Rings recruited to serve the USSR.
