My huge apologies to Stuart, Paul and Ruth at Walsall Local History Centre. I meant to run this last night, but I was so knackered from work (to be quite frank) that I went straight to bed. My apologies. This does look great, though, and it’s on now, so pop in to the Museum in Walsall Town Centre if you get chance.
Walsall Local History Fair will take place at Walsall Museum in Lichfield Street, above the Central Library, on Saturday 13 October 2012, between 10.30am – 3.30pm.
And as well as displays and the chance to talk to representatives of the centre, museum and other organisations throughout the day, there will also be special talks and other activities, including local historian and author Ian Bott who will speak on ‘Black Country Murders’ between 2pm – 3pm, Paul Ford, archivist at Walsall Local History Centre, speaking on ‘An Edwardian Family Mystery’ at 11.00 am and 3.00pm and Tariq Khan from the Heritage Lottery Fund who will give an overview of heritage lottery funding from 11.30 am-12.15pm.
Talks will take place in the Education Room off the Changing Face of Walsall gallery. Stalls and exhibits will be on the floor above.
Admission to Walsall Local History Fair is free of charge and all are welcome!
