Local History Talks


We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have resumed our long-interrupted programme of Local History talks.

The next will take place at

7-30pm on Wednesday 6th October

at Main Hall, Grange Hall, Main Road, Radcliffe on Trent.

Dr Richard Gaunt

will speak to us on

Nefarious Notts:

The Pentrich Revolution 1817

We know that you wish us to take the Covid safety precautions seriously and so we have adopted the following measures:

  • Although the Main Hall at Grange Hall can accommodate 250 people, we are limiting the number of tickets to 100.
  • Tickets must be bought in advance from Pen2Paper, Main Road, Radcliffe on Trent. Price £3
  • Some of you will have tickets saved from our previous cancelled talk (in Spring 2020!). As we need to control the numbers attending you CANNOT use them for entry to this September talk; however, we will refund the £3 you paid for each one, at the door at this or a future meeting.
  • Chairs will be distanced but attendees can, if they wish, group chairs together in ‘bubbles’ of families or friends.
