Hilary Tolputt: A talk on Fashionable Folkestone

A well attended talk by Hilary Tolputt. Folkestone was a small fishing town until the Victorian period when it became a fashionable destination for high society. This was due to the influence of the

Radnor family, and later the patronage of King Edward VII who famously frequented Folkestone with his mistress Alice Keppel in the early 1900s.
