Churchill and the 'Boffins' of the First World War


Churchill's enthusiastic backing of scientists and new ideas during the Second World War is well-known but his support for innovation can also be seen as far back as the First World War in his career at the Admiralty and - later - the Ministry of Munitions.

This talk is the third and last instalment of our series exploring Churchill's early career and his role in the First World War. The talk starts at 19:00 (doors open 18:30) and tickets include the opportunity to view Churchill War Rooms after the event until 21:00.
