History meeting

The next ATA History Group meeting will be on Monday 10 February in the back room of the Ashburnham Arms at 7.30pm.
The meeting will feature a talk by Triangle resident Neil Sinclair. Neil is going to kick off the theme of Triangle Lives with a talk on the journalist, author, playwright and film scriptwriter Edgar Wallace. Wallace was born illegitimately into poverty in Ashburnham Grove in 1875. Despite leaving school at 12, he rose to great acclaim and fortune as a novelist and scriptwriter.
Wallace’s eventful and colourful life ended far from its beginning in a terraced house in Greenwich. He died in 1932 in Beverley Hills, California while working on the script of Hollywood blockbuster King Kong.
Please join us for a drink. There will be an update on our other projects and please bring ideas for future talks.
