Event Short Description

Hugo Vickers – Malice in Wonderland, In conversation with Mandy Morton

Event Information

An expert on the British Royal Family, Hugo Vickers’ life took a turn in 1979 when the photographer Sir Cecil Beaton invited him to be his authorised biographer. The excitement was dashed only days later when Cecil Beaton died. But Vickers journey had begun – he was entrusted with Beaton’s papers, diaries and access to his friends and contemporaries.

In Malice in Wonderland, Vickers shares excerpts from his personal diaries kept during this period. For five years, Vickers travelled the world and talked to some of the most fascinating social and cultural figures of the time. Malice in Wonderland is a portrait of a now disappeared world, and portrays some of its most fascinating characters as Vickers travels on his quest.
