Bromley of the 1870's comes to life with the vivid words of HG Wells taken from his autobiography and other works.

Bertie, as he was known, was born in 1866 and brought up at 47 High Street (now Primark) then “one of a row of badly built houses..” with a shop on the ground floor selling china crockery and a special line of cricket goods. He says “We lived mostly downstairs and underground, more particularly in the winter Young Bertie was free to roam out on to Martin’s Hill where he imagined soldiers charging across the slopes sending a defeated army off towards Croydon!

Martin’s Hill was also the scene of real battles between the boys of Morley’s Academy (now the Frames & Art shop) where Bertie attended and the boys of the National School (now the Methodist Church).

Booking is recommended, please contact the event organiser.
