History Happenings

NOVEMBER 15TH
The meeting topic is one that you the members have chosen.

A Tudor Christmas.

Sam is coming to tell us all about what the Tudors got up to at Christmas. Last time the speaker was ill and unable to come but it was too late to organise another topic and we had a Question and Answer session about local history in Hucknall. It made my day to hear someone say “I enjoyed that”.

DECEMBER – NO MEETING

JANUARY 17TH
What about a surprise meeting? I will be a bit mysterious. It is around Halloween as I write!

Please don’t forget you can contact me if you need help with your family history at any time.

A Tudor Christmas Anyone?

OCTOBER 18TH An indoor meeting at Central Methodist Church to start at 2pm. There is free car parking at the rear of the building off the new road Torkard Way. Michael Parkin was a very entertaining speaker last month. We learned a lot about why the Pentrich Revolution happened 200 years ago and the awful consequences to the main people involved. This month Sylvia Mason is coming to tell us about all the research done to connect with the descendant families of the marchers. You might be surprised because their names are often found locally so you might even find that you are linked with them as well.

The starting point is the Canning circus top end of the cemetery and it will finish at the bottom near the Trent University tram stop. Cost £3 per person. Proceeds to the Civic Society.

Looking ahead. A special visit has been arranged at Nottingham Castle on 19th July. An archaeologist will meet us at the Gatehouse at 2pm to take us on a tour of the medieval remains of the castle and tell us about the ‘dig’ and any finds discovered. Cost £1 per person
