Following the great success of the exhibition in London, Manchester and Cambridge, The Bulldog and the Bull. Churchill and Spain visits Madrid now in a fascinating opportunity to get a perspective on Churchill’s compelling life story with a colourful exhibition of rare archive material: photographs, posters, and key documents from Spain and the UK.
This exhibition, curated by British-Spanish journalist and author Jimmy Burns Marañón OBE, shows Churchill’s relationship with Spain from his days as a young soldier in Cuba through to his later years as a tourist during the 1950s. It underlines his sense of adventure and nobility, his controversial politics, and the admiration he provoked among his most loyal followers. It also provides a glimpse of key periods of the history of modern Spain and its impact on a man whose interest in people and life defied national boundaries.
Exhibition opening guest of honour: His Excellency the British Ambassador to Madrid Mr Hugh Elliot
