Discussion Group Special: Local History Question Time

Wednesday 4th December, 7:30pm, Library Meeting Room

This Discussion Group session will be a little bit different to usual as it’s:

Local History Question Time (sort of Gardener’s Question Time meets Antiques Roadshow)

Our panel for the evening will be:

  • Roy Canham, former Country Archaeologist for Wiltshire
  • Roger Clark, Hon. Curator of Bradford on Avon Museum, and former Geology Curator at Bristol City Museum
  • Ivor Slocombe, local historian and author of many books on Bradford on Avon and Wiltshire’s history
  • Pam Slocombe, buildings historian and former head of Wiltshire Buildings Record

We ran this session last December, and all who attended agreed that it was a really good evening and lots of fun.

Please do come along with your questions, or items for identification, or anything interesting you’ve dug up in your garden!  If you can’t think of any questions, don’t worry, come along and listen.  We are so lucky to have such a knowledgeable panel that I’m sure you will hear something interesting!

I do hope you can join us!

Discussion Group covers a wide range of subjects, and if you haven’t been along to a session yet, do try it out.

The meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm in the Library Meeting Room, and are FREE to members (please remember to bring your membership card!).  Non-members can attend one session before being asked to join.  If you know of someone who isn’t a member, do bring them along – it’s a great introduction to the Museum.  View the full programme for 2019.

If you would like to volunteer to give a talk to Discussion Group in 2020, please contact Kate Turnbull at turnbullke@googlemail.com.
