Tuesday, 28 November, 7:30pm

The Thames froze solid at least seven times between 1309 and 1813, and the ice was thick enough to support a full-blown fair. Hazel Forsyth of the Museum of London presents the history and paintings of these ‘Frost Fairs’ and describes the final Frost Fair of 1814 when an elephant was led across the ice by Blackfriars Bridge.
