On Thursday 19th September the members of the enjoyed a fun packed monthly meeting at the Casa de Cultura. The guest speaker, Mark Davis, gave a presentation ‘How the London Cockney influenced U.S. Culture’. Mark gave a very interesting and informative talk, which was illustrated with photographs and lots of humour which kept the audience enthralled. He displayed a pearly king outfit which he had made himself and explained how the tradition of pearly kings and queens came about. He also used some cockney rhyming language and explained how many of the words used have influenced the language in America.
The presentation was really interesting and educational as well as being infused with lots of humour.
