Chartwell was the Churchills’ primary residence from 1924 until Winston’s death in 1965. For more than forty years his home was his sanctuary as well as his factory. It was the site of his phenomenal political and literary output, the inspiration for his paintbrush and the place so dear to him that he often remarked that ‘a day away from Chartwell is a day wasted’.

Churchill’s Europe

Tue 13 April, 17:00 (BST)

Sir Martin Gilbert Conversation Series – Allen Packwood in conversation with Professor Richard Toye and Felix Klos


Richard Toye
Richard Toye is Professor of Modern History at the University of Exeter. He has published nineteen books, and is an expert on the life, career and reputation of Winston Churchill. In 2007 he won the Times Higher Education Young Academic Author of the Year Award for his book Lloyd George and Churchill: Rivals for Greatness. His most recent monograph, Winston Churchill: A Life in the News (OUP, 2020) explores his journalism, his media image (and his efforts to control it), and the reception of news about him by ordinary readers and viewers. This builds on the approach Richard used in The Roar of the Lion: The Untold Story of Churchill’s World War II Speeches (OUP, 2013) which showed that Churchill’s oratory generated much more controversy and criticism than legend suggests. Richard has often appeared on TV and radio and has written for publications including The New York Times, The Guardian, and the Times Literary Supplement.
Felix Klos is an American/Dutch historian, political scientist and author. Klos was educated at the University of Oxford, Lincoln college and Middlebury College Vt. His academic work has focused on European integration. During his studies he served as a Legislative Intern in the United States Senate and an International Office Intern for the progressive Dutch Liberal Democratic Party D66.

Klos is the author of Churchill on Europe: The Untold Story of Churchill's European Project (London, IB Tauris, June 2016) and Winston Churchill - Father of Europe (Amsterdam, 2016, Hollands Diep). In addition to the books Klos published a number of newspaper and magazine articles regarding Churchill's European legacy in the perspective of the UK EU referendum in June 2016.

Churchill’s Dramatic Legacy

Tue 27 April, 17:00 (BST)

Sir Martin Gilbert Conversation Series – Allen Packwood in conversation with Lord Dobbs


Michael Dobbs is an active member of the House of Lords, author of the original House of Cards and an authority on Winston Churchill.

He’s long had a ringside seat on history. He was with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher when she took her first steps into Downing Street, and was with John Major 18 years later when he was kicked out. He’s been variously described as ‘Westminster’s baby faced hitman’ and ‘a man who in Latin America would have been shot’.

He is a five-time Emmy award nominee, winner of multiple literary awards and the recipient of the International Churchill Society’s prestigious Blenheim Award for his novels and wide scholarship about Winston. A reviewer for The Times described one of his Churchill novels as being ‘the most compelling account of that great parliamentary occasion that I have ever read,’ while a member of the Churchill family says ‘he fills in the bits in between the history’.

The National Churchill Leadership Center (NCLC) at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. is the first major facility in the United States capital dedicated to the study of Winston Churchill. The Center, through its collections, interdisciplinary academic programmes and educational exhibits, will offer GW students, faculty, researchers and the public the opportunity to come together as a community and immerse themselves in discussions and scholarship infused with the ideas of citizenship and leadership exemplified by Churchill. The NCLC opened in 2016.

Sir Martin Gilbert Learning Centre

The Sir Martin Gilbert Learning Centre is an initiative designed to make accessible the finest historical research. Founded in 2017 in memory of the late British historian and Churchill’s peerless chronicler, Sir Martin Gilbert, the Centre focuses on the subjects Sir Martin spent his life exploring: Modern Jewish History, the Holocaust, the First and Second World Wars, and Winston Churchill.

It seeks to widen the reach of historical study and enable better understanding of the dynamic relationship between past, present, and future. The Centre offers a wide range of research-based lectures, courses and conversations, and also runs the Sir Martin Gilbert History prize, a competition for secondary school students to develop their skills as historians through scholarly engagement with primary sources.
