A century in 12 objects…


Lichfield: it’s full of historical stories and hidden surprises. Why not explore them for free with Lichfield Discovered?

I see that there Kate Cardigan from the wonderful Lichfield Lore is going from strength to strength with her informal and fun Lichfield local history group, Lichfield Discovered.

The Lichfield Discovered group is led by some wonderful local historians like Kate and Dave Moore, Sandfields Pumping Station expert and campaigner.

Kate had this to say about the next meeting of Lichfield Discovered, which takes place on Monday next at St. Mary’s, just in the Market Square in lichfield:

If you don’t mind would be grateful if you’d plug this Monday’s (10th March) Lichfield Discovered meeting.

It starts at 7pm and we’ll be presenting 100 years of Lichfield history through 12 objects. Everyone welcome, and would be great if they would bring their own objects to share.

If like me they don’t have a wardrobe full of Lichfield memorabilia they could always get creative – somebody has written to tell me they are bringing a bottle of water from St Chad’s well!

Refreshments will be provided, and although there is no charge, any donations to the Lichfield Museum (previously known as Lichfield Heritage Centre), at St Mary’s on the Market Square, where the meeting is held, are very welcome.

It’s something a bit different and I think it will make for a really interesting evening.

These events are increasing in popularity, and I can see why; this is a collection of dedicated but offbeat local history enthusiasts who really know how to make their subject engaging and entertaining. And it’s absolutely free to attend. What’s not to love?

Please do attend, it’ll be great fun!
