Tuesday 9th February The Secrets of the Attic  Part 2 

"Back in 1999, my family and I moved into this old house. We discovered a small door in the attic and beyond it, a huge bird's nest. Mixed in the straw, we came across an astonishing collection of Victorian photographs, souvenirs and letters."   
This is how Tony Nicholson describes how he began to unravel The Secrets of the Attic, a fascinating tale of lovers, rivals, friends, family, places and secrets.

Tuesday 9th March The Caped Crusaders with Anthea Lang

Anthea Lang's talk is about how 200 men, one woman and a dog marched from Jarrow to London in 1936.  (Some possibly marched further still. My family tell the tale that my grandpa, a tenant farmer,  gave two Jarrow marchers lodgings on his farm near Faversham in Kent where they worked for a while before making the trip back home. But how to prove it!)
