Dr Tessa Murdoch with Jeremy Booth as Samuel Pepys 

Venue: Bank of England Museum,  Bartholomew Lane, London EC2R 8AH

12.30pm

This is an unticketed event

The Great Plague and the Fire of London, vividly brought to life by the diarist Samuel Pepys were shattering for the French Church of London in Threadneedle Street. This talk with Dr Tessa Murdoch of the V&A Museum, uses Huguenot expert Dr Robin Gwynn's research to explore how the church overcame these shocks so that, in just a few years, it was able to play a major part in welcoming the first Huguenot refugees from Louis XIV's France.  Excerpts from Samuel Pepys' diary will be read by Jeremy Booth.
