Current arrangements


It remains difficult to predict a time when we will be able to resume our meetings in our usual venue but Bramcote History Group is offering presentations via Zoom as follows:

Monday January 18th at 7.30pm “The White House, Bramcote”

Monday February 15th at 7.30pm “The Smith Family of Bramcote Hall”

Both these presentations will be given by Val Bird, Chair of BHG.

Arrangements for March onwards will be advertised in accordance with the changing Covid situation. The planned programme, if meetings in the hall can take place, can be viewed elsewhere on this site.

If you would like to join the virtual meetings, please email bramcotehistory@outlook.com and a link to the meeting will be sent to you. All members will have this sent to them as a matter of course.
