The presentation will be live and online.
When the First World War drew to a close, Tubby Clayton returned home to run an ordination school. Before his departure, he envisioned a Talbot House back home for veterans to cater to their mental, physical and spiritual needs. In a few years, he founded the worldwide TocH charity, organised pilgrimages to the battlefields and brought together thousands of veterans. It was during this period that Lord Wakefield of Hyth was persuaded to purchase the Pool of Peace and the Old House in Poperinge.
Join Simon Louagie, Talbot House Manager, for a memorable presentation with some unique photographs and film footage from the inter-war years.. Find out how Talbot House was reopened and how we still try to live by the same principles today.
