|Tue Feb 2nd||Committee Meeting|
|Tue Feb 2nd||Tuesday Live Roger Browne’s “Not Father O’Malley” traces his childhood in wartime and post war Salford. It features the music that he heard and enjoyed, in his beloved home city from a very early age. Music, which lead to him singing in public from the age of three, recording “Come back to Sorrento” at the age of four and teaching himself to play the piano at the age of five. The talk will include lots of live music played by Roger on his piano. Not Father O’Malley takes an hilarious look at what it was like to be brought up in a city, blitzed in the war, ravaged by poverty and floods, and strangled by overcrowded and inadequate housing. He talks with great warmth, how, in spite of what post war Salfordians had to cope with, his greatest memories are of love, kindness, compassion, humanity and, above all, humour. Lots and lots of humour.|
|Tue Feb 16th||Tuesday Live Roger Evans will give a talk on Monmouthshire Slave-Owners, the story of some locals who prospered from the 'cruel trade' and also benefited from its abolition.|
Roger is a former civil servant, magistrate, Gwent County Councillor and school governor. Since retiring, he has researched a number of historical subjects, using personal knowledge and anecdotes to illustrate many of his talks. He is Chairman of Blackwood U3A.
