Journey into the past with us!
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!
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
- Martin Luther King Jnr
Steve will lead everyone through a period in history or an historical event, usually chosen by the members in advance, and introduce us to and explain the social, political, economic happenings of the time. Members are also encouraged to participate by doing their own research and sharing their own findings, ask questions and discuss ideas.
For the session you will need your laptop or mobile device and session zoom link, a quiet space and a notepad and pen if you wish to make notes.
Steve will lead the session, so you get to just be there and relax, enjoy the stories and to talk as much or as little as you like.
Watch a recent session recording here:
Steve gained a degree in History & Politics at Manchester Polytechnic and helped produce an online history course. Steve works hard to produce a detailed presentation for each topic, merging talking about films and TV shows with the accurate historical events/eras that they are based upon. His format for this group is brilliant - the sessions are interesting, informative and lots of fun with plenty of discussion too. Catch up on previous sessions on our YouTube Channel!
