Description

Pelham Cottage - with its infamous unlocked back gate - was where Annabel Goldsmith kept an open house for some of the most sophisticated and iconic people of the 1960s and 1970s. Lady Annabel Goldsmith - society hostess and eponym for an exclusive Mayfair nightclub - recounts life in her Kensington home during the 60s and 70s, where she operated an open door policy and entertained some of the most extraordinary figures of her inner circle and icons of the era. But Pelham Cottage was not just a dazzling party scene - it was also a treasured family home that provided longed-for stability and happiness, and where Lady Annabel raised her family. A time of huge personal change, Lady Annabel shares her most intimate memories of those cherished days, offering fascinating insight into her own character as well as the swirl of London's hedonistic decades.show more
