OUT AND ABOUT IN LONDONíS SUMMER / THE HISTORY OF LONDONíS SPORTING ACTIVITIES

This programme provides a major insight into the constantly changing face of
attitudes to life throughout the centuries. Each lecture is a broad view of a particular theme coupled with a closely connected visit to a place of outstanding attraction.


William Fitzstephen in 1170 describes ice skating, archery and an early form of football, and indeed from medieval times we can follow the role of sport as a leisure pursuit such as the 17th century pell-mell. Cricket, tennis, football with its various codes all followed and three times the Olympic Games have been held in London. We will see some of the famous personalities such as the 18th century bare-knuckle pugilists, to the professionalism of the present age with its massive landmarks of world famous stadia.
