‘London is a giant kaleidoscope, which is forever turning. Take your eye off it for more than a moment and you're lost.'
Robert Elms has seen London change beyond all imagining. In conversation with broadcaster and journalist Jason Solomons, he takes us back through time and place to myriad Londons; a place his great-great-grandfather made the Elms' home over a century ago and a city that has borne witness to epoch- and world-changing events.
London Made Us: A Memoir of a Shape-Shifting City will be available to buy from the London Transport Museum shop from 7 March. Robert will be signing copies of his book, published by Canongate, after the talk.
