A Very British Family: The Trevelyans and Their World

£11 - £--1 HourSt Cross College
About this Event:

BBC correspondent Laura Trevelyan talks about her account of the unique Trevelyan family. The Trevelyan’s, of whom she is a descendant, dedicated themselves to the service and chronicling of Britain over several generations.  They included the radical, reforming civil servant Charles Edward Trevelyan and the historian G M Trevelyan. They were often seen as eccentric, priggish, high-minded and totally self-regarding, yet they left their mark on British history.

Laura Trevelyan is a BBC journalist based in New York and a former BBC UN correspondent.

This event is part of the festival’s women in society series sponsored by HSBC.
