Crude Britannia: How Britain was shaped by Big Oil

Wednesday 14th November 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A talk by Terry Macalister at Milton Road School

Former Guardian journalist, Terry Macalister, will read from and discuss Crude Britannia, his forthcoming book on how Big Oil shaped this nation’s past and future.

Can we really blame Brexit on energy companies? Did oil refineries really play a role in the development of Rock Music? Can a nation that relied on Black Gold go Green?

What role do we individuals have in our Energy Future?

This talk will be at the school (in the Community Hall at the rear), not the library which is a building site. Car parking is available at the school


Space is limited and these talks are ticketed. Please apply to the Friends of Milton Road Library by email to fmr.library@gmail.com or by leaving us a note at the temporary library.
Tickets are free to current members of the Friends of Milton Road Library and £3 per person to non-members (payable on the door).
