Local History Talks


After the disappointment of having to cancel the talks arranged for 2020 (especially after our first two popular events at the start of the year) we are pleased to announce the programme of talks for 2021.

You will understand that the programme is a provisional one. While the speakers and Grange Hall have been booked, we are at the mercy of developments with Covid19. We hope that the talks can take place, but all is not within our control.

The talks are due to start at 7-30pm in the Grange Hall, Main Road, Radcliffe on Trent.
