Peter & Dan Snow: The Battle of Waterloo Experience

  • 21 September 2015 From 7:30pm

This June marks 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo, one of the world’s most famous and important battles. To mark this significant anniversary Peter and Dan Snow will give a fascinating talk, illustrating the climactic showdown between the military giants of the age: Napoleon and Wellington.

On the morning of Sunday 18 June 1815 these figures faced each other for the first and only time across the sodden rolling Belgian farmland south of Brussels. More than 150,000 French, British, Dutch and Prussian soldiers fought in this epic, bloody and decisive encounter that ended the Napoleonic Wars and led to decades of international peace in Europe.


£15 & £17.50 plus transaction fee*
* £3 transaction fee, plus £1 (optional) postage, will be charged on all bookings except purchases made in person at the Town Hall or Symphony Hall Box office.
