Bromsgrove Society Autumn Programme

The Bromsgrove Society's local history meetings resumed in September. The next meeting is:

  • 16th November 2021: Bromsgrove: The Story of a Market Town. Speakers: Jenny Townshend and Julian Hunt
    LHG Talk Nov21
    Local historians Jenny and Julian will be providing a preview of the Society's forthcoming book, Bromsgrove: The Story of a Market Town, which will be published early next year. It chronicles the history of this north Worcestershire community over the last one thousand years, telling the story of the town and its people based on the latest research. This major, new book is the first such history to be published for more than thirty years. Running to over 320 pages, the book is lavishly illustrated with drawings, maps and photographs, some of which have not been seen before. Register here

 

  •  7th December: When the Lights Went Out: Birmingham goes to War. Speaker: Andrew Lound.

Following his much-acclaimed evening about the Titanic, Andrew is returning to give us a dramatic presentation about Birmingham’s wartime experiences. Another evening not to be missed!  Register here.

 

As the public health situation is still uncertain, the Society will continue to hold its local history meetings online via the Zoom platform, at least until the end of the year. We hope to return to the Methodist Centre from January 2022. All meetings start at 7.30pm. See the full programme here.
