2017 Programme

After a very successful year in 2016 the Society plans a varied programme for 2017 covering such topics as researching local and family history, Cadburys and The Vale, a film night, the Great Flood of 1607 and an interactive evening featuring historians, dowsers and a paleo-archaeologist giving their opinions on what Slimbridge looked like in the past.

Come and join us!
