Monday 22 January 2018, 7.00PM9.00pm

When Lloyd George promised ‘Homes fit for Heroes’ in 1918 it seemed the start of a new era of prosperity and stability for ordinary people. However high expectations and good intentions are not always fulfilled. This course will examine the immediate aftermath of the Great War, the misery of the Depression, the impact of wartime austerity 1939-45, the creation of the Welfare State, the 1950s boom, and the impact of Thatcherism on British Society, for good or ill.
