H. G. Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’ was published in 1898, putting Woking firmly on the map. Join Professor Peter Beck, Emeritus Professor of History at Kingston University as he explores the impact of the book in a national context, as well as Wells’ life and local experiences.

The Lightbox hosts a series of lunchtime and evening talks on a range of subjects. Advance booking required. Talks last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions. Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the evening talks. Wine and juice are available to purchase at evening talks.
