Frank Spooner was Bedfordshire’s first Director of Education. Young, capable and driven, but ultimately mired in scandal. Listen to this true Edwardian story as it unfolds day by day, hour by hour. Mark Steinhardt has been given access to the primary documents so he is able to bring these sad events fully to life. Spooner was a complicated man. How will the story end?
Mark will balance the history with a couple of traditional tales which you will be able to enjoy with your tea and a mouth-watering selection of cakes. Expect to choose from ginger, fruit, lemon drizzle, coffee and chocolate cakes, with maybe cheesy scones and bara brith and other delightful surprises too.
All engaging, grown-up storytelling. Mark has been ten years a professional, so he’s sure to draw us into his worlds.
All are welcome.
The price of £6.50 includes stories, tea and cake.
