    London Studies 1 visit the Grand Order of Water Rats

    31st October 2018

    London Studies 1 visited the HQ of the Grand Order of Water Rats in October to hear all about the long history of this charity and be entertained by a senior Water Rat! This organisation was founded back in 1889 and its aim is to raise money for deserving causes. Past members have included Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Will Hay, Peter Sellers and many other famous entertainers. Royalty are also involved in the work of the Water Rats with the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles “Companion Rats”! The hour and a half talk was as much a stand up comedy gig as a history lesson on the organisation and some of its more colourful members. The Water Rats museum was a fascinating insight into Music Hall, Variety and Television entertainment over the past 100 years. Well worth a visit but be prepared to wait some time to get a slot. ...

    Blue tits, science and sex

    4th October 2018
