Lewes History Group talk: How well do you know Lewes? – Monday 13 December 2021, 7:25 for 7:30pm. Followed by AGM for Members

A Zoom Webinar

John Kay: How well do you know Lewes?

Our December talk will take the form of a self-assessment photo quiz for all the family, conducted in the privacy of your own home, to test your local knowledge about Lewes and its immediate neighbourhood.

We shall be showing a number of images taken about a century ago in and around Lewes, almost all in the reigns of King Edward VII or King George V. There will be some churches, a few country houses, the occasional windmill and lots of views of the Lewes townscape.

Almost all the images will include buildings that are still here today, although some of them may now look a little different. English provincial towns today do not look quite as they did in our grandparents’ day, and not all the changes are for the better.

Some of us are excellent at visual recognition; others don’t find it so easy. The aim will be to see how many of the images shown you and your family can identify.

This talk will be followed by a brief AGM for our members.

We will email members a link to register for the talk in advance, as usual, plus another link to join the AGM.

Non members can buy a ticket for the talk (£4) from TicketSource – see below.
