++++++++++++THIS MONTH ++++++++++++
Our April EVENING talk is on TUESDAY 4 April at the CornerHouse. 
Talk by Michael Gilbert: London 1851 – The Great Exhbition
The Great Exhibition of 1851 was probably the most successful, memorable and
influential cultural event of the 19th century.  With Prince Albert’s energetic patronage and Joseph Paxton’s gigantic pre-fabricated
building of iron and glass, from May to October 1851, Hyde Park was filled with over six million visitors who were able to view over 100,000 exhibits. When it closed it had generated a vast profit of £186,000.
Evening Talks
The Society usually meets on the first Tuesday of every month.  We now have a new venue which is Covid safe and very friendly and social. It has a bar too! There is no need to pre-book a place but it helps to let us know if you are planning to attend.


Doors open 7pm.  Please follow the signs and enter through the bar area.

Talk starts at 7.30pm.
