Event: 'Stories of ordinary folk', 19th October 2013

'Stories of ordinary folk', the Nottinghamshire Local History Autumn Day-School, will be held at Ravenshead Village Hall on Saturday, 19th October 2013, 10 am – 4:15 pm.

"The man-in-the-street may not make the history books, but people in the past at least had their rites of passage recorded. If they fell by the wayside the workhouse was there to offer some relief and perhaps a form of escape. Other diversions included the village bands."

The speakers are:
  • Valerie Henstock: Reading between the Lines - Stories from Parish Registers
  • Peter Hammond: Joseph Woolley, the Diary of a Framework Knitter
  • Victoria Preece: A Common Fate - People in the Workhouse
  • Chris Weir: When the Bands Played On
Cost: £6.50 (members of NLHA) and £7.50 (non members).

There is no need to pre-book. For further information call 01509 820067
