Gordon of Khartoum: a Victorian epic
02/03/2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A return visit from Max Keen for his latest performance from his gallery of historical characters.
Charles George Gordon – AKA Chinese Gordon, Gordon Pasha, Gordon of Khartoum. A Victorian hero prised from the true Victorian heroic mould!
Why was it that a Royal Engineer General, who decided to take over a town in the middle of a desert, became a national hero and brought down a government!
Uncover the truth about Gordon of Khartoum and why this crude, insubordinate and untrustworthy junior general would appeal to both the British people and Queen Victoria, in true stiff upper lip style!
