This Funzing Experience:

Come and get festive with us this December at Winterville - as Funzing takes over their Bar Humbug pub for a series of exclusive LDN talks - with 1 x FREE mulled wine included with each ticket.

After 2 Seasons of the cult series on Netflix "Narcos", Shaun Attwood – an author, activist and public speaker – will be presenting the mind-blowing true story of Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel beyond their portrayal on Netflix.

Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar was a devoted family man and a psychopathic killer; a terrible enemy, yet a wonderful friend. While donating millions to the poor, he bombed and tortured his enemies – some had their eyeballs removed with hot spoons. Through ruthless cunning and America’s insatiable appetite for cocaine, he became a multi-billionaire, who lived in a $100-million house with its own zoo.

Shaun’s story of rave parties and Ecstasy distribution was featured worldwide on National Geographic Channel’s Banged Up Abroad. Shaun spent the last several years writing a War on Drugs trilogy. The first instalment, Pablo Escobar: Beyond Narcos has stormed the Amazon charts and become an immediate bestseller. It demolishes the standard good versus evil telling of Pablo’s story. The authorities were not hunting Pablo down to stop his cocaine business. They were taking over it.

Venue: Bar Humbug @ Winterville, Clapham Common

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

LDN Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a LDN Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
