The Masters of Ceremony in Leamington’s Assembly Rooms could be thought of as mere dandies but the reality is very different.  This talk uncovers the Napeoleonic Wars careers of three of its M.C.s – Francis Stenton, Abiathar Hawkes and John Paul Hopkins.

This is a short talk commissioned for the Leamington Museum and Art Gallery’s Friday Focus Sessions.  As such it lasts around 25 minutes and costs £30.  However it can be extended to a full size talk if required at £45.
