“Experiencing the Thirty Years’ War” – BGA Lecture by Professor Peter Wilson”

Monday 15th October 7 pm

German Historical Institute, 17 Bloomsbury Square, London WC1A 2NJ

Click here to register your attendance

2018 marks the 400th anniversary of the Defenestration of Prague. By throwing the Regents of the Catholic Emperor out of a castle window, the Protestant Estates triggered the Thirty Years War, the largest military devastation of Germany until the Second World War.

Professor Peter Wilson is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading authority on the Thirty Years’ War. The BGA is grateful to the German Historical Institute London (GHIL) for hosting a lecture by Professor Wilson delivered exclusively to BGA members.

The event will take place on Monday 15 October at 7pm. 17 Bloomsbury Square, Holborn, London WC1A 2NJ. There will be a drinks reception following the lecture. The event will be free and only open to BGA members and friends.  Numbers are limited, so please click here to reserve your free ticket.

Why go to Munich when you can celebrate Oktoberfest in London! Join us for Schnitzel, Schweinshaxen, Steins (Maß) and live music!

This year, after hearing excellent reports we are going to the Octoberfest Pub in Fulham (nearest Tube Parsons Green) to enjoy the authentic Bavarian atmosphere – with traditional food, beer and a live oompah band.  What’s not to love!

Do come and join and us – and do please bring your friends too. It’s party time!

BGA Members’ Ticket: £30.00 per person

BGA Members’ Guests and non-members £35.00 per person

Each ticket includes:  a freshly baked Bavarian pretzel, your choice of main meal from our Oktoberfest menu & of course a 1 litre stein of imported bier (cider or a large glass of wine).  You will also receive a special gift – an authentic imported Oktoberfest stein glass to help you commemorate the occasion.

When registering we would ask you to choose which dish you would like – Schnitzel, Schweinshaxe, 1/2 Hendel, Bratwurst  or the vegetarian option.  You may also chose the Oktoberfest special – Schweinshaxe –  but please note there is an extra £6.00 charge per head for this choice.  All the above dishes are served with Pommes and Sauerkraut.

As we will have to pre-order the food we would ask you to book your tickets no later than 11.30 pm Tuesday 9th October so I can finalise the details with the venue.

Please print off your ticket and bring it with you.   (This will also remind you of your menu choice on the evening!).

We look forward to seeing you!
