An audience with Gary Powers


Recommended Posts

Hi guys I am, through the museum,  in discussion with Gary Powers Junior, yes the Gary Powers of U2 fame, and talking about his father and his role in the Cold war.  Gary jnr  has become a well known speaker on espionage and the cold war and the events that led up to Gary Powers snr being shot down and the aftermath of that.

He has agreed to do a talk at our museum on the 20th  or 23rd April 2022.  We are thinking it will cost £15 pounds plus a cold buffet,   Depending upon numbers will determine the final location but we are looking at doing it within one of the marquees at the museum

Can people get in touch if they are interested with their preferred dates...paul.obrien@thecoldwarmuseum.com
