338 - London Historians

Mike Paterson (Standard English/Zimbabwe accent)

Yeah, hi, I’m Mike Paterson, I run a organization (sic) called London Historians, which I started five years ago, and it’s a subscription club for anybody who’s interested in the history of London, essentially. We send out monthly newsletters, we meet every month at the pub and I also organize lots of talks and walks and behind-the-scenes visits to museums and art galleries and archives and things like that. And it’s very sociable and the idea is that we all exchange our enthusiasm, our expertise, we help each other out with questions or research or anything of that nature, and we have about 500 members now. And it’s... it’s a lot of fun. So that’s what London Historians is all about: www.londonhistorians.org. Come and see us!
