Talking Local History

Formerly the Family History Group, ‘Talking Local History’ meetings feature informal talks, mainly by members, but also by visiting speakers, on topics that they have been researching – with occasional ‘audience participation’!

The meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm in the Court Room, Old Police Station.  At present (November 2021) we continue to provide talks via Zoom, although we will be experimenting with hybrid Zoom (live “in person” + zoom).

Everyone is welcome, but CCHS members who are new to Campden may find the talks of particular interest, providing an introduction to Campden’s history.  The meetings are equally of interest to people who were born locally and have their own stories and memories to tell.

The talk will be given live, but will also be filmed and transmitted on Zoom at the same time. We will be testing the technologies of this approach in case we are still limited in numbers for some future meetings.

If you want to attend this talk in person, then YOU MUST BOOK BEFOREHAND, as there is a limit of 35 people in the Court Room. Please email the Secretary on sec.cchs@gmail.com or ring 01386 848840 and leave your name and message.

This meeting is for MEMBERS ONLY. We will contact you to confirm your booking or notify you if all the seats are taken.
