An Illustrated Talk by Peter Willis




Arthur Ransome’s "We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea" was inspired by his boat the Nancy Blackett
which appears in the book as the Goblin.
 
But there was more to her influence on the novel than that, as Peter Willis shows in this new book, which combines an analysis of this classic of maritime literature (“a book of which Conrad would have been proud” – Hugh Brogan) with the history of the boat herself, her life, near-death, restoration and renaissance as an ambassador for Ransome and his tales.
 
Also included: Arthur Ransome’s own article, ‘Saturday to Saturday’ and notes on all of his other boats
 
 
Peter Willis is a former Deputy Editor of Classic Boat, currently performing a similar function on Classic Sailor magazine. In 1996 he launched an appeal to buy Arthur Ransome’s Nancy Blackett and preserve her to be sailed as a living reminder of Ransome and his works. He lives in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

Admission to the talk is a nominal £5.00 which is fully refunded on purchase of the book or any item from Arthur Beale worth over £15.00.

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe
24 Nov 2017 - 12:00pm to 26 Nov 2017 - 5:00pm

It doesn't get more Christmassy than this! Especially if its freezing cold and drizzling. But do not fear, the place will be full of warm waffles, hot chocolate and weird cuts of meat to keep you cosy. Arthur Beale will be there as London's largest stockist of Norwegian Devold Woollens and Merino Thermals. There will be Ship Biscuits, Arctic Pilots and anything else we can think of even remotely connected to our Scandinavian friends. I draw the line at hats with horns on but we will let Noggin the Nog in. Come along and get festive.
