We are very pleased to tell you that the talks programme for the first half of 2022 is complete now. And we’ve got some new speakers on board to present on a wide range of topics.
Among other things, we look forward to a talk on Quakers at War (some in Dorking) by Dr Frances Hurd; a talk on Dorking Music Hall by Brian O’Gorman, the official Historian of the British Music Hall Society; a talk on Anglo-Saxon Surrey by William Aeres; a talk on the amazing women of the Temperance Movement – mostly from Surrey – by Ros Black.
Those of you interested in theatre/film and/or World War One will enjoy a talk by Pete Allen on the life of RC Sherrif, who wrote “Journey’s End” (a famous play about World War One), was an officer in the East Surrey Regiment in the Great war. and was a successful film scriptwriter (e.g. for “The Dam Busters”).
And the ever-popular Kathy Atherton returns, to speak on Suffragettes and Socialists in Surrey, and we’ll have a members’ evening in February.
And there’s lots more – see the club programme pages
