An Evening With Lesley Smith as Margaret Thatcher
May 5 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Margaret Thatcher is without doubt one of the most successful women of the 20th century. From roots in a grocer’s shop in Grantham, she gained a degree in chemistry at Oxford and later also took a law degree.
Margaret Thatcher then succeeded in doing what would have been unthinkable even twenty years earlier, by becoming Britain’s first female prime minister. Her firm handling, both of the Conservative party and of government policy meant she could also be a contentious figure, going down in history as ‘The Iron Lady’.
Admired by many and loathed by others, Margaret Thatcher is one of the most striking political figures in living memory. Lesley bring this portrayal of an extraordinary woman to audiences, many of whom remember the Thatcher years. Using the words of Margaret Thatcher herself in the biography ‘The Path to Power’, we will hear her describe her journey to Number 10 Downing Street.
