Thanksgiving Dinner

Location: Clothworkers' Hall, Dunster Court, Mincing Lane, London EC3R 7AH

Thursday 23 November, 7.30pm 

An American Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings will take place at magnificent Clothworkers’ Hall.  Roast turkey (and stuffing and vegetables and of course pumpkin pie) will be a highlight.  Franklin, in addition to suggesting the turkey become one of America’s national symbols, practised cooking it as part of his early work on electricity.
