Daunt Books Festival 2019

Spies and Stars

Charlotte Bingham


Thursday 14th March 2019 at 5:00pm  |  Daunt Books Marylebone


Tickets are £7 including a glass of wine.

When Charlotte Bingham turned eighteen, her father summoned her into his study to tell her it was time she knew what his boring job in the War Office really was – he was a senior officer in MI5 and moreover, he was arranging for her to join ‘the section’.

Full of period detail of 1950s London, the candid and breezy MI5 and Me, hailed by Tatler as a ‘stone-cold comic classic…joyfully silly’ describes the months there that followed. Her new book Spies and Stars continues the story. When Charlotte falls in love with Harry, a handsome if frustrated young actor, Harry finds himself recruited into the family business and what’s more, he’s being sent undercover…

Charlotte will be joined in conversation by Penrose Halson, author of the hugely popular Marriages are Made in Bond Street, which wonderfully captures 1940s London in true stories from a Bond Street marriage bureau.


This event is part of the Daunt Books Festival 2019.
The event will start at 
17:00 and end at approximately 18:00.
