Meeting – Monday 12 December, 7:30pm

Christmas Meeting featuring short talks about members’ research projects:

Ian McClelland – Impact of the Railway on Lewes

 ∞ Interval with seasonal refreshments ∞

Paul Myles – Film: Rodin in Lewes – ‘The Kiss Comes Home’

Our Christmas meeting will feature two talks by members. The coming of the railway often had a dramatic effect on the area’s trade and history. Ian McClelland has been exploring its impact on Lewes, and will give us an account of this work in progress. After the interval Paul Myles will show us a film recording a piece of more contemporary history, the story of the Rodin exhibition in the Town Hall that featured the return to this town of his famous ‘Kiss’ sculpture.

As this is our Christmas meeting, we will be offering mulled wine and mince pies in the interval between the two talks, instead of coffee and biscuits before the meeting.

Venue: The new King’s Church building on Brooks Road, Lewes. (Between Tesco car park and Homebase)

See the Meetings page for a list of  forthcoming monthly talks organised by the Lewes History Group.
