A packed audience awaited Sir Nicholas Soames MP at Tonbridge School for an evening “In conversation…” with our excellent Parliamentary candidiate (and budding interviewer) Tom Tugendhat.
From his idyllic days growing up at Chartwell with his Grandfather Sir Winston Churchill, to his time in the army including as Equerry to Prince Charles, and in Parliament and Government, Sir Nicholas recounted episodes from his life which had his audience riveted. Sir Nicholas’s memories of his Grandfather in particular were both personal and touching.
Tom’s interviewing style worked well with a clearly shared admiration of the armed forces and a gentle affinity between the two men which made 90 minutes pass in no time at all.
It was a great evening in the presence of one of Parliament’s great men.
