Group Coordinator: Anne Clarke
Meeting time - Third Thursday monthly, from 2pm to 4pm
This group has been running for over 20 years and over that time we have studied historical events and periods from around the world.
We have used Open University, Open Learn and Future Learn materials for inspiration and background knowledge, the internet and libraries and have thoroughly enjoyed hearing from other members about battles, political movements, individuals, buildings and art, etc.
Members present a short explanation of the subject they have chosen and
meetings are usually augmented by video material mostly found now on You Tube.
The group is member led and when one subject has run its course another is selected by members after discussion.
During the pandemic of 2020/21 we continued to meet via zoom but adapted the programme slightly to accommodate the technology.
Maximum group size is 10
