Saturday events

Our Heritage Hub on site monthly Saturday events are also going from strength to strength.  December’s event “Anything that moves” was on the theme of transport and attracted over 80 people!

In January our theme was 'New Year, new hobby' with talks by Averil Kear, local author and researcher and Ben Nicholls of footstepsfamily.co.uk. Experienced members of Gloucestershire Family History Society also ran a live ‘question and answer’ session.

Upcoming themes to look forward to in the next few months are house history (February), literary archives (March); schooldays (April) and heritage careers (June.) 

You can check out and book for these and other events via the Heritage Hub website www.heritagehub.org.uk/events/
