Alan Bennett pops in to camp

 

Occupy London Stock Exchange camp at St Paul’s Churchyard got a surprise visit from Alan Bennett, when he dropped in for a tour of the camp on Friday and had a cup of tea at the Tea and Empathy Tent.

To the camp’s delight, Alan was able to spent a little time and read a story about his school days at the camp’s educational arm – Tent City University. He also spoke about the importance of free education for all. Video coming soon.

Alan left also left some books – The History Boys and his family memoir, A Life Like Other People’s – in the camp’s library, which he signed and dedicated “To Occupy London”.
