After dark with the National Trust

We live in a vast and uncertain world, and controlling just a tiny, scaled-down part of it restores our sense of order and worth. In this illustrated talk, Simon Garfield, bestselling author of Just My Type and On the Map, will explore our peculiar fascination with making things small, and what small things tell us about the world at large.  

 In his investigation of our obsessive attempt to bring things down to size in order to better understand them, Simon will reveal the secret histories of tiny Eiffel Towers, the truth about the flea circus, a doll’s house made for a Queen, eerie tableaux of crime scenes, miniature food, model villages and railways, and more.

Simon Garfield
Simon Garfield was born in London in 1960. He is the author of an appealingly diverse and unpredictable canon of non-fiction, including the bestsellers Mauve, Just My Type and On The Map. He is a trustee of Mass Observation, and is the editor of several books of diaries from the archive, including Our Hidden Lives and A Notable Woman. His study of Aids in Britain, The End of Innocence, won the Somerset Maugham Prize, while To The Letter was one of the inspirations for the theatre shows Letters Live.
