Diplomat and former British Ambassador to Germany and France, Sir Christopher Mallaby, will present a lunchtime talk on Monday 14 October in the Hammond Theatre.

We are very fortunate to be able to host a Talk! by Sir Christopher Mallaby author of Living the Cold War. Sir Christopher has had a long and distinguished career representing Britain abroad. He entered Her Majesty’s Diplomatic Service in 1959 and worked in Moscow during the early 1960s, witnessing the Soviet leadership’s decision-making during the ‘Thirteen Days’ of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. He was the British Ambassador in Germany from 1988-1992 placing him at the heart of events at the end of the Cold War and the unification of Germany in 1990. He then served as the British Ambassador to France 1993-1996. We are excited to hear Sir Christopher discuss his career and to tell us about many of the people he met during his time as an Ambassador; an insider’s insights on a cast of historical figures and crucial world events.

On Monday 14 October, at 12.45pm, Sir Christopher will be talking to pupils and members of the Hampton Community. Tickets are free but must be reserved at https://hamptonschool.org.uk/events/sir-christopher-mallaby-talk/
