Our Spring programme of presentations, which concluded mid-May, was very well supported.

During the summer months, various visits and guided walks have been arranged for members only.

The next presentation open to guests will take place at 3pm on Monday September 2nd in St. Michael’s Church Centre, Bramcote – our usual venue. Brian Lund will be introducing us to Edwardian Nottingham and showing how the city has changed. Please note that this is an additional afternoon event.

Our Autumn programme commences on Monday September 19th at 8pm when James Wright will speak about the recent excavations at Strelley Hall.

From June, we are embarking on our next major research project. The recent release of the 1921 census has encouraged to look at Bramcote in the 1920s. We want to “paint a picture” of what life was like here about 100 years ago and hope that many will want to contribute to this project. Please turn to the research section of this website for further details.
