Desley, our speaker coordinator has organised a full list of speakers for 2020.
Starting in February with Andrew Tucker, "A brief look at the history of Live Theatre in Mansfield"
“This talk should entertain, amuse and inform those who know Mansfield and especially so if they grew up locally.
There is a lot of fun audience participation where the audience is invited to recall the past and to rekindle memories from their youth and maybe their courting days.
We start way back when, recalling many buildings that have long since been demolished and finish with the here and now of the Mansfield Palace Theatre”.
