저희의 문화 프로그램: Legal London

(you may need to click on 'download pictures')

 

We are very proud of our cultural programme here at Central School of English.
This week's programme included a walk to the legal district, an area of London generally undiscovered by tourists.
It is a beautiful walk and students enjoy the peace and quiet of the 'Inns of Court' where you feel to be miles away from the crowds and the traffic. It's full of history too. We talk on the walk about a famous architect, the Knights Templars; about Shakespeare, Richard the Lion Heart and the history of the City of London. And we also visit a historic tea shop.
So, can you identify these famous buildings that are included on the walk? 

 

 

 

In one of these buildings you can find the tomb of a very famous knight called William Marshall (Earl of Pembroke). He actually ruled England in the early 13th century.

So, on the subject of famous KNIGHTS:

1 Which document did Sir William Marshal help to negotiate? There is a clue in the dates above.
2 In those days knights would enter competitions, one of which consisted of two knights on horseback racing towards each other holding a long 'lance'.The idea was to hit the other rider with the lance and knock him off his horse. What is the name of this sport?
3 Which very athletic king of England was knocked off his horse when doing this sport? He was very badly hurt, his leg became ulcerated, and he then started to grow very fat because he could no longer do any sport.
4  Which French Knight of the 14th century wrote 'The Book of Chivalry'. He was captured twice by the English but let go because they thought he was very honest and could be trusted to pay his own ransom?
5  The horse called 'Rocinante' belonged to which famous 'would-be' knight? 
6. What relation was Lancelot to Galahad?

Good luck. Click on 'Contact us' and email us your answers.

 

Last Night of the Proms

Ok, it's passed now but click on the link below for a quick taste of the 'Last Night of the Proms' which took place on Saturday.
The BBC proms are the biggest annual music festival in the world, lasting from July to September and taking place at the magnificent  Albert Hall in Kensington.
Each year the festival ends with an evening of 'tongue in cheek' celebration when we Brits wave the Union flags, sing patriotic songs and pretend we still run an empire! The really crazy thing is that people from all over the world also attend and wave their own national flags while singing along too. Outside the Albert hall a simultaneous concert takes place in Hyde Park . Thousands of people attend.
This year saw a south American flavour with the Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez leading the singing, dressed up as the Last King of the Incas. Great stuff.
And don't worry, we know that we don't 'rule the waves' any more!! There were lots of people this year waving the European Union flag too.

 

 

 

New Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum

'You say you want a revolution 1966-1970'

The exhibition explores the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism. The exhibition considers how the finished and unfinished revolutions of the time changed the way we live today and think about the future.
