Mervyn Edwards 2020 History Programme & Other Talks



Local historian Mervyn Edwards' Green Door History 4 Health programme (see separate page) has proved so popular that additional illustrated talks have now been organised independently of his Green Door arrangements.

Each of the presentations will be held in the Victoria Lounge/Reardon's in Adventure Place, Hanley.

From October 2019 admission to each event will be £3, payable on the day.

All the one-hour presentations are on Mondays, beginning at 11 am promptly. Everyone is welcome.
