Denise Beddows Talk
Denise Beddows Talk

Buckinghamshire has a 600 year history of subversion, sedition and espionage. The county has been home to radical plotters, heretics and heretic hunters, agents provocateurs and informers. Two world wars brought spies, secret agents and saboteurs to the county and many of our stately homes housed wartime code-breakers, eavesdroppers, boffins, intelligence chiefs and even Nazi officers. From religious martyrs and gunpowder plotters to atomic secrets traitors and the domestic terrorists of modern times – this county has seen it all.

The speaker is an author Denise Beddows. Retired from government service, and with a background in research, investigation and intelligence analysis, Denise writes (as DJ Kelly) biographical fiction and local history, and (as Denise Beddows) true crime and spy thrillers.

Coffee/tea and biscuits will be available from 7.30pm. The talk starts at 8.00pm. No booking necessary. Guests and new members welcome.
