The 10th Anniversary of Lunchtime Club Talks in Local Studies!

lunchtime club 2015 prog2We are proud to announce that this year’s series of our local history talks is celebrating the 10th anniversary! Since its conception in 2005, this free event has been a platform for sharing cutting edge research into the rich past of the Huddersfield area.

With a great variety of exciting topics and two extra talks in February, our Lunchtime Club has got off to a flying start in 2015!

For instance, the centenary of the Great War has been marked by Vivien Teasdale in January and the miners’ history will be remembered by Anne Bradley in line with the 30th anniversary of the end of the miners’ strike.

There is a lot to look forward to. So, get a copy of our Lunchtime Cub Programme 2015 and come along to one of our talks!

This event organised by the Huddersfield Local Studies Library every other month is a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.

Meetings are held in the Light Reading Room of the Huddersfield Central Library and begin at 1pm. Light refreshments are provided.Picture1

The next talk will be on: Wednesday 20th May
