Saturday talks

Grasmere History Group

Jerwood Centre

03 April 2018
7.30 - 9.00pm

Contact us to book

Grasmere History Group is a group of local people who meet monthly to discuss matters of local history. It is a very friendly, informal gathering at which we share our interests and ask questions of others who might know the answers we seek.  We have a wide range of interests and in recent years we have produced exhibitions about Grasmere in the First World War and the early years of tourism in the Lake District. 

New members from near or far are very welcome and we are always looking to meet more people with fascinating stories to tell about Grasmere and the Lake District.  We meet on the first Tuesday of each month in the Jerwood Centre at 7.30pm.  This month,we will hear from Emily Bell, BARS Early Career Fellow, about her current research project on what it is like for local children to grow up with Dove Cottage.
