Dorchester Historical Society : The Historical Society’s Christmas Miscellany

We’re back!!

A DATE FOR THE DIARY – Wednesday 24th November at 7.30pm in the Abbey.

The Historical Society’s Christmas Miscellany

To celebrate our emergence from pandemic restrictions, we invite you to come and join us for drinks and nibbles and to hear from three local authors about their latest books.

Peter Adamson will be talking about his book Landmark in Time: the world of the Wittenham Clumps.

Margot Metcalfe will be talking about the just published 50th anniversary edition of A Yankee in an English Village, the remarkable Edith Stedman’s memoir of her time in Dorchester.

James Pratt will talk about his book Through the Gears, Through the Years which describes his career in motor sport against the background of his family’s life in Dorchester

There will be a chance to buy the books at the end of the meeting, or at the Museum’s Christmas opening, and to hear about our programme for 2022. We have some really fascinating talks coming up.

Books make perfect Christmas presents, particularly for those with an historical bent, so come along and support local authors.

ALL WELCOME
