Willington History Group – Made in Derbyshire – a presentation by Shirley Horton

10 November @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm


What comes to mind when you think of ‘Made in Derbyshire’?
Time to celebrate the wonderful, creative people of Derbyshire and the amazing contribution they have made, and are still making to our lives.

Shirley Horton, a popular local historian who will be familiar to many, is to lead us deeper into why we should be proud to fly the ‘Made in Derbyshire’ flag.

WHG is for anyone who is a little curious about where they live and how we used to live. Our talks/presentations are open to everyone and although some focus on Willington, many are cast wider, however always centred on where we live.

Past presentations have included; ‘The role of the Governess’; ‘Murder at Staunton Harold’; ‘Beside the Seaside’, which looked at the history of seaside holidays, postcards, Punch & Judy, piers etc.; ‘Shorthose Pottery of Willington’ and ‘A short pictorial journey of Willington through the years’

The Entrance Fee of £3, payable on the door, includes refreshments.

Oh, and did I mention, EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
