Are you interested in local and family history? Then get a copy of our Lunchtime Club Programme 2015! This event organised by the Huddersfield Local Studies Library every other month is a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.
In 2015, you can look forward to a great variety of talks by specialists on their subject ranging from mining disasters to local histories of the Great War.
The first talk of the season is ‘Huddersfield in the Great War’ by local author Vivien Teasdale on Wednesday 21 January 2015.
This year we have organised two extra history talks for you!
February 4 – Juliet Barker, medieval historian and Brontё biographer, talks about her book England Arise, which chronicles the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381. Find more at: http://julietbarker.co.uk/events.html
February 18 – Dr Jill Liddington, Leeds University Research Fellow and expert on women’s suffrage movement, will speak about the suffragette plan to boycott the 1911 Census, based on her book Vanishing for the Vote. For more information see: http://www.jliddington.org.uk/1911-census.html
