Social History

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday from 10.00-12.00 at the Victoria Park Bowling Club.

We study the historical development of a particular society, chosen by members of the group. Each topic involves a series of lectures and may take up to a year or eighteen months to complete. However all lectures are self-contained with each session lasting 2 hours with a break for coffee and finishing with an open discussion.

At present we are studying Women in History.
.
The group has increased over the years and now amounts to 50 or 60 regular members.

Unfortunately we now have a waiting list.
