PHRASES AND SAYING
Etymology of the City of London
by Alan Read
The English language is rich in idioms, phrases and sayings which are part of everyday speech yet seldom to we consider their original meanings. This is an exploration of historical etymology, often traceable to the City of London. Even if you have a ‘rob Peter to pay Paul’ and it’s ‘raining cats and dogs’ you would be ‘barking mad’ to miss this lecture.

We will enjoy a journey of deep appreciation of art and its history in an entertaining and informative way. Alan enjoys guiding people through art insights at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the National Gallery at the Courtauld
