Lawrence of Arabia Talk

The throaty roar of Brough motorbikes will be heard at the National Civil War Centre to recall the extraordinary life of Lawrence of Arabia. The man who shot to world-wide fame leading the Great Arab Revolt a century ago and whose story inspired the classic David Lean film of 1962 was besotted by the powerful machines which were hand-made in Nottingham - the SS100 type was guaranteed to top 100mph. Now Alan Payne of the TE Lawrence Society – and a Brough owner - will give a fascinating talk on the man and his machines starting at 2.30pm on Saturday 24 June. The Brough Superior Club will also be there with half a dozen of the classic bikes, likely to include one actually owned by Lawrence himself in the 1930s and which is now in private ownership. Kevin Winter, from the National Civil War Centre, said: "Lawrence visited Newark every week on his Brough whilst he was based at RAF Cranwell, so that makes this occasion especially apt. He owned seven Broughs and the firm used that to great effect as the ultimate celebrity endorsement of its time." Howard Wilcox, originally from Newark, and whose Brough Superior is on display at the National Civil War Centre as part of the Shifting Sands exhibition currently running about Lawrence, added: "The exclusive marque was known as 'The Rolls Royce of Motorcycles' and it's not surprising Lawrence fell in love with it. They are superb machines." The Lawrence exhibition is based on 10 years of excavations in Jordan and traces his life from archaeologist to war hero who drove the Turks from Arab lands. Feted around the world, he eventually turned his back on fame and lived under an assumed name in the RAF until he was killed in 1935, the result of a fatal and mysterious crash in Dorset on his Brough Superior. Admission to the talk and exhibition is included in normal entry: £8 adults, £7 concessions and £3.50 children. A season ticket is just £16 and English Heritage members go half price.
