Tristram Hunt

Ten Cities that Made an Empire

Friday 14 July, 6.00pm

Theatre Royal

Tickets: £14 from Theatre Royal box office

Since the return of Hong Kong to China in 1997 and the end days of Empire, Britain’s colonial past has been the subject of passionate debate; Tristram Hunt presents a new approach to Britain’s imperial past through the cities that epitomised it. From the pioneers of early America to the builders of modern India, Hunt follows the processes of exchange and adaptation that collectively moulded the colonial experience and which transformed the culture, economy and identity of the British Isles.

Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tristram Hunt is a British historian, broadcast journalist and former Labour Party politician.
