Don’t miss Back to Backs – another brilliant Talk in the Wood!

Clive is a very entertaining guide and historian. This talk is not to be missed!

Don’t miss your opportunity to attend another fascinating local history talk at Walsall Wood Library this Wednesday, 15th March 2017, when Birmingham Historian and National Trust Guide Clive Katz  will be discussing the subject of the Birmingham Back to Backs.

Clive Katz will be the speaker at the next ‘Talk in the Wood’ at Walsall Wood Library on Wednesday 15th March 2017, at 2.30pm.

Clive will deliver a talk on the Birmingham National Trust Back to Backs: the lives of Birmingham working people in the Back to Back dwellings from 1840s to 1970s. See how Court 15 survived the 1960s redevelopment. Clive will speak about life in the Court during four periods in history – 1840s, 1870s, 1930s and the 1970s.

Clive is a National Trust guide. Clive will be giving the audience a snapshot of the lives of four families, living and working in this fantastic place.

Following the success of David Evans’ recent talk in the series ‘ A talk in The Wood’, as well as others by the likes of Ethel Lote, interest has grown in these wonderful events, which are friendly, informal and also a great chance to meet likeminded people in the local area.

Clive’s talk starts at 2:30pm, and costs just £2.50 (including refreshments).
