Journey into the past with us!

BW Book 6.png


Session Brief

History is full of stories about people and places, good and bad. These stories shape the way we think about ourselves and the world around us. This group is led by Steve (with occasional guest hosting slots by Ann-Marie!) who provides us with fascinating insights into past events/eras and the people involved, and generates some lively discussion! This session runs every other Wednesday evening opposite Family History with Alan.


We are not makers of history. We are made by history.

- Martin Luther King Jnr
