This evening at 7:30pm, (7th October 2015), they have the next of their regular social evenings at the Kings Head (note the altered venue!), Bird Street, Lichfield where you can meet the group, talk local history, suggest future events or just shoot the breeze over a pint.
Kate had this to say about it:
This Wednesday (7th October 2015) at 7.30pm in the Kings Head, Lichfield Discovered is holding it’s monthly meet-up. The idea is that people can come along to the pub on the first Tuesday of every month and get involved in planning our events, share ideas and, of course, discuss any interesting snippets of history they’ve come across, or would like to know more about, over a drink. We know people have busy lives and lots of other commitments and so it’s important to stress that there is no obligation to come every month, just as and when you’re able to (or want to!). We’d rather see people once in a blue moon than not at all. Lichfield discovered Alongside these monthly meet-ups we will of course continue to do walks, talks and other events. If you don’t want your involvement with Lichfield Discovered to be anything more than coming along and joining us for these, then that’s great, and we shall welcome you with open arms and custard creams, and ask nothing more of you.
If, however, you’ve got ideas about what we could or should be doing, or where we should be going, or if you’ve got any skills or knowledge that you think we could make use of, then please do come along and join us at the pub. Even if it’s just to register a preference for chocolate hobnobs over custard creams.
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!
