The Winter Warmers 2017-18 season begins on Friday 27 October 2017 with a talk by Robert Fellowes, entitled “22 Years in the Royal Household.” Robert lives at Snettisham, in his 22 years in the Royal household acted first as assistant private secretary to the Queen, then Deputy Private Secretary and finally Private Secretary to the Queen from 1990 until his retirement in 1999. His tales of those years are bound to be entertaining!
