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 now, today (25th October 2014) at The Crossing at St. Pauls, Darwall Street, Walsall, between 10.30am – 3.30pm – it’s free, and a great event.
This blog wouldn’t exist without the help and goodwill of Walsall Local History Centre – please do pop along and talk to them. In these straitened times, they provide a wonderful service whose importance may not be understood by the politicians. Please show your support.
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.
Just a reminder that Walsall Local History Fair s this Saturday at The Crossing at St Paul’s, Darwall St, Walsall, 10.30am-3.30pm.
In addition to stalls and displays, the following activities will also be available: Children’s Craft Activities 1am‐1pm and 2pm-3pm with Ruth Radcliffe. Build an industrial scene from card!
Illustrated Local History Talks 11am-12pm: ‘Walsall – Town of a Hundred Trades’ by Mike Glasson of Walsall Leather Museum. and 2pm-3pm: ‘Whose Story? Black Country Manufacturing in Living Memory’ by Paul Quigley of Black Country Echoes.
Seats in both talks are subject to availability on the day.
Admission to Walsall Local History Fair is free of charge and all are welcome! @WyrleyBlog (Paul Ford) will be there, and he’s a top bloke!https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/525939557565739008
