The Bayeux Tapestry: A Play In Three Acts

Small Hall, Welwyn Civic Centre at 7:00 pm.

It is not an evening of embroidery!

The speaker is Gary Fisher, who lives locally. He will be talking about the Battle of Hastings.
Act one is the background to the Battle.
Act two is the build up to the Battle.
Act three is the actual battle on 11th September 1066.

The cost for members and non members is £8:00. Members will be given a raffle ticket on arrival for a special, members-only raffle. There will also be another raffle which everyone can buy tickets for. After the talk, of about an hour, there will be themed refreshments, e.g. cider and Camembert, and possibly Calvados. Hill's will be selling tickets, as will Graham Middleton ().
