Meeting – April 2017

March 14th, 2017 by JCope

Our next meeting at St Saviour’s Church Hall is on Tuesday 4th April 2017 at 8pm. There will be a presentation by Julian Hunt, entitled ‘Harry Vincent and the Blue Bird Toffee Factory, Hunnington’. Harry Vincent’s Blue Bird tins were a sort of visual history of 20th-century Britain. The uncovering of Tutankhamun’s tomb in the 1920s triggered a spate of Egyptian designs; and when British families discovered the seaside after the war, so Blue Bird sold them beach scenes and piers; the 1960s shepherded in rockets and airliners.

Commences 8pm at St Saviour’s Church Hall, DY9 0NS. Visitors are most welcome at all our events – see Home page for details. Annual membership £10
