HISTORIC AFTERNOON AT BRIGG BUTTERCROSS
Brigg has been chosen to host the annual meeting of a regional campaigning group, prior to which there will be an interesting talk by a well-known speaker that is open to interested members of the public.
The Northern Lincolnshire Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) will be holding its AGM at Brigg Buttercross on Saturday, October 19, from 3.30pm.
Before the meeting, at 2pm, Dr Kevin Leahy will give a talk entitled The Lost Kingdom - Anglo-Saxon Lindsey.
Dr Leahy is an archaeologist, historian and author whose close connections with North Lincolnshire Museum are widely known.
Tickets cost £5 in advance from Brigg Tourist Information and The Rabbit Hole Bookshop and should be available shortly. Or you can pay on the door on the day. Refreshments will be provided.
