Anne de Courcy: Riviera Tales Thursday October 03 - 10/03/2019 02:00 pm £12

The South of France was a world apart in the 1930s. Peopled with the rich and famous, it was a golden glamorous life. As a masterly writer of social history Anne charts a fascinating period in Chanel’s Riviera:The Cote d’Azur in Peace and War, 1930-1944. As well as the eponymous designer the Riviera attracted Churchill, Dali, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to a world eventually torn apart by a dreadful war.
