Marriages Are Made in Bond Street
In 1939 two young women opened a marriage bureau in a tiny office on Bond
Street, where they set about the delicate business of matchmaking. Decades later, Penrose became proprietor of the bureau and now she tells their story in conversation with Festival regular, Lucy Cavendish. She reveals a world of gents with a merry twinkle, nervous spinsters, friendless farmers and girls looking 'exactly like Vivien Leigh', all desperately searching for 'the one'.
