Other Events Across the County

(programmes of local groups and societies)

Although every effort is made to keep this list up to date, changes sometimes have to be made to published programmes by local history groups and we are not always made aware of them.  We therefore strongly recommend double-checking with individual societies before attending one of these events, to avoid disappointment.  You will be able to find contact details for these societies on our 'OTHER SOCIETIES' webpage, or by an internet search.

Monday 27 May 2019

Brandon, Bretford & Wolston History Group, Brandon Club, 7.30pm: Dawn Webb on Family Connections in Wolston and Brandon

Saturday 8 June 2019

Coventry's Godly Magistrate: The Diary of Robert Beake, Mayor of Coventry 1655-6.  This talk by Stewart Fergusson will explore Beake's emergence as an influential Coventry figure and MP and in particular his attempt, under Major General Whalley's oversight, to build a godly commonwealth in Coventry. It is something of a case study on the theme explored in  Bernard Capp's England's Culture Wars. Various documents will be at hand for attendees to look at including his interesting diary.  1 pm to 2 pm, Coventry History Centre at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry.  Click here for details on how to book.
