Max Hastings on ‘Chastise: The Dambusters Story 1943’ – book talk & signing @ Herongate Club
Oct 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Max Hastings on 'Chastise: The Dambusters Story 1943' - book talk & signing @ Herongate Club | England | United Kingdom

We welcome back Sir Max Hastings – one the UK’s finest military historians. This year he will be talking about his brand new history of the Dambuster’s raid.

Operation Chastise, the destruction of the Mohne and Eder dams in north-west Germany by the RAF’s 617 Squadron on the night of 16/17 May 1943, was an epic that has passed into Britain’s national legend. Max Hastings grew up embracing the story, the classic 1955 movie and the memory of Guy Gibson, the 24-year-old wing-commander who led the raid.

In the 21st Century, however, he urges that we should see the dambusters in much more complex shades. The aircrew’s heroism was entirely real, as was the brilliance of Barnes Wallis, inventor of the `bouncing bombs’. But commanders who promised their young fliers that success could shorten the war fantasised as ruthlessly as they did about the entire bomber offensive.

Some 1,400 civilians perished in the biblical floods that swept through the Mohne valley, more than half of them Russian and Polish women, slave labourers. Hastings vividly describes the evolution of Wallis’ bomb, and of the squadron which broke the dams. But he also portrays in harrowing detail those swept away by the torrents.

He argues that what modern Germans call the Mohnekatastrophe imposed on the Nazi war machine temporary disruption, rather than a crippling blow. Ironically, Air Marshal Sir Arthur `Bomber’ Harris gained much of the public credit, though he bitterly opposed Chastise as a distraction from his city-burning blitz. Harris also made perhaps the operation’s biggest mistake – failure to launch a conventional attack on the huge post-raid repair operation which could have transformed the impact of the dam breaches on Ruhr industry.

Here once again is a dramatic retake on familiar history by a master of the art. Hastings sets the Dams Raid in the big picture of the bomber offensive and of the Second World War, with moving portraits of the young airmen, so many of whom died; of Barnes Wallis; the monstrous Harris; the tragic Guy Gibson, together with superb narrative of the action of one of the most extraordinary episodes in British history.

Please book early to hear this bestselling author. He will take questions from the audience before signing copies.

Hungerford Food Festival 2019 @ Hungerford Town Hall
Oct 6 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm
Hungerford Food Festival 2019 @ Hungerford Town Hall | England | United Kingdom

Hungerford High Street will be filled with the aroma of more than 50 stalls providing everything from pizza to curry to gourmet burgers to vegetarian specialities.

The festival is a real family event and there is a lemon eating competition for kids, plus a chilli eating competition for adults, and children are invited to make their own healthy food creation with staff from Hungerford Nursery. Plus, there’s also a kids’ cook off event where children will be invited to cook with Wiltshire chef and author Lucinda Miller.

Sustainability is also very much a theme of this year’s event and visitors will be able to buy food in bulk in their own containers from the Lonely Lentil zero waste stall and a new company inspired by last year’s Hungerford Food Festival, called Beer, there and everywhere will be selling refillable three-pint beer bottles.

There will be information on how to use less plastic and how to make your own compost to the benefits to health, the countryside and the climate from eating venison. Attendees can learn how to avoid cling film and other plastic disposables by making beeswax eco wraps with Little B, a local maker of beeswax food wraps, an eco-friendly, plastic-free way to keep food fresh.

As well as having a range of her wax wraps for sale, Little B Founder Claire Black will be offering hands-on demonstrations where participants can choose from a selection of fabric prints and sizes and make a wax wrap to take home.

Visitors can bring along their own apples to make into juice, and also watch rapeseeds get pressed into oil.

Hungerford Food Festival is a family-friendly community event that has been celebrating local food producers and artisans since 2009. The event supports  Hungerford Environmental Action Team (HEAT) and is sponsored by Doves Farm, Blandy’s at Inglewood and the Media Marketing Co.

The full meetings of Hungerford Town Council take place on the first Monday of the month (or the first Tuesday if the Monday is a bank holiday). The meetings start at 7pm and generally last between one and two hours (except for the one in August which is generally very short and only concerned with a few formal items).
