Visit Big Brother at the chapel in June

Big Brother looms as large in our lives as he did in 1949 when George Orwell introduced him to the world in the novel 1984. With a history of bannings and court challenges, the book still deserves its iconic and provocative reputation. Come and hear the slogans, the Newspeak, the fiction turned fact in this dramatised version. Of course, Orwell featured heavily in the life of Fitzrovia and remains a mighty figure in our cultural history.

Event details

The event is on Friday 29 June at 13:00 at the chapel. There is no charge and everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy the chapel. It is part of our Wireless Contemplation series featuring key figures from Fitzrovia.

George Orwell is believed to have used the Newman Arms in Fitzrovia as the setting for the proles pub in 1984.
